    anyone seen this site?

    www.ready.gov

    i heard about it on the radio. its strange the way they prepare us for things like this. i just seems so weird.

    it reminds me of those old school "duck and cover" films they showed kids and i think to the genreal public.

    i dont know, just though i would share.

    *edit

    haven't you seen the tv ad?

    It has Tom Ridge comparing terrorism to earthquakes and hurricanes. It makes me VERY uncomfortable that he's drawing a parallel between acts of terror and unavoidable NATURAL occurances...

    Then it has the fireman telling us that 'It doesn't matter where you live. We're ALL the target. America is the target."

    Well, in that tv commercial, 1st it's Ridge, then Fireman 1 and then Fireman 2 pops up and says:
    "Store water and non-perishable foods for at least 3 days."

    Which in turn makes me wonder how many people are buying Friday's Spaghetti-O's on Tuesday...

    This Ready.Gov site is one of the scariest things I've ever seen..The comparison of NATURAL Disaster/Terrorist Attcks is downright horrific. That makes you think that someone/somewhere has more info than they would like to share.

    On the other hand, I have a hard time believing that there are the same odds that it might rain vs. a missle coming through my arcadia door. These are the kinds of things that you have to experience to really be scared of. 9-11 just didn't hit home as much as it would have if it were in California or a bordering state for that matter.

    All in all...Terrorist suck ass....
