    Who’s surprised? The whole damn ride company is foreigners that don’t speak English and Wayne county keeps bringing them back. You get what you pay for.

    County fairs, air shows and amusement parks will never get my money. They’re just too dangerous. They should be held to the highest safety standards and provide proper training for employees instead of just picking up any old riffraff they find along the way.

      I agree, it’s about time those air shows get some quality people in there. The Blue Angels and Thunderbirds have been sketchy since day one. We appreciate you staying away from those places, Mayor McCheese. Much better without you.
