It is a major issue that has been on and continues to be on the minds of people at the water cooler, at the dinner table, in living rooms, in restaurants, at train stations – indeed, anywhere people gather – with most expressing at least their opinion on whether the president is fit to continue in office, let alone run for another term.

ATLANTIC CITY — There will be no screaming jets flying over America’s Playground this summer as plans to host the Atlantic City Airshow have disappointingly fallen through.

The two-day event was originally scheduled to take place for the 21st time on Tuesday, August 13 and Wednesday, August 14. According to the city’s tourism board, the show attracted 485,000 people to Atlantic City last year.

But now the Atlantic City Airshow has been canceled, according to a joint statement from the Greater Atlantic City Chamber, Visit Atlantic City and the South Jersey Transportation Authority.
