All this first responder BS ticks me off…

It is not possible for any single region to react to a regional disaster be it from Man or Nature… That is why it is called a “regional disaster”.

You will not by definition have a regional disaster until the region cannot handle the situation. If they can handle it they call it a “local disaster”.

SO, of course they are not ready… of course they will NEVER be ready.

Oh, but we have a PowerPoint presentation that outlines our National Strategy! See, look! Animated charts! Neat bullet points! Concise summaries! We’re working hard and making difficult decisions every day! God Bless America! (Next slide, please.)

The kind of readiness that should be available TODAY for a few 100 million.. let alone a few BILLION.

Blah.. they suck… I could do much better 😛

@Scenic Artist:

“…A spokesman for Democratic Majority leader Bill Frist said…”

That would be in a parallel universe, as Bill Frist is a Republican in this one…

A parallel universe.

Using the new camera on the Hubble Space Telescope, astronomers have been able to confirm that the Moon is made of green cheese. The telling clue was the resolution of a marked date after which the Moon may go bad. Controversy still exists, however, over whether the date resolved is truly an expiration date or just a “sell by” date.
