Aint this great. Only in America would a system designed to transmit information to the citizenry in times of dire emergency have a vulnerability the size of the Grand Canyon.

So THAT's why I haven't heard the "this is a test of the emergency broadcasting system..." these last few years.

The EAS is the Emergency Alert System which replaced the Embergency Broadcast System in the mid-90s.

As a sidenote, it is amazing that the EAS was no activated here in the DC area during the 9/11 attacks. But it was activated for the 9/24/01 College Park tornado and subsequent tornado and severe storm outbreaks this year...

I remember being in DC then. Being gainfully unemployed at the time, I slept through the whole thing. I remember thinking "why didn't that air-raid siren thing they set off every Wednesday at noon go off?

the USPS cannot make their $5.5 Billion payment this month and are in danger of shutting down come winter and are asking Congress for help. My main thing is who signs a "no layoff" agreement for any job?
