The U.S. Navy’s elite flying squad, the Blue Angels are circling San Francisco this weekend, setting off car alarms, scaring the Parrots of Telegraph Hill, rattling windows and setting teeth on edge.

It can be pretty dramatic stuff to look at. But if you’ve ever wondered why the U.S. is feared, loved and loathed overseas, an afternoon on the ground while the angels are in town is as good a demonstration as you’re likely to get.

In a burst of cranky contrary-ism, today’s HotSpot is a book that should be a lot more popular than it is: Seymour Melman’s The Permanent War Economy which tries to explain why the U.S. loves its fighting power.
