More DHS follies. In this case, what we have here is a failure to communicate. From a Californian living near the wildfires (the good folks at skippy don’t like capital letters):
we’ve been out of power here since about 7:00 p.m. this evening. we just finally got back up. 140,000 people were hit by this outage. try as i might, i could not get any information from the radio. all that was on was baseball games, right wing radio bloviating and a replay of larry king live.
which does beg the question…if the “terrorists” attack, will you ever know…because our emergency information system sucks the big one. it’s all about syndicated shows and sports over the public interest.
very scary. the blood red of the skys and the smoke filling the air tends to make the hair on the back of your neck rise and the natural desire to flee kicks in…big time. i’ve finally gotten some news on the radio and they are saying that the fire has spread to 300 acres and the huge power outage was due to “smoke” overwhelming their lines. uh..huh.
who needs terrorists to destroy our county. we just need careless folks with matches and no public information to rely upon.
They’re not the government’s airwaves, they’re your airwaves….
