Timing is Everything

So... guess what kicks off today...
National Preparedness Month
This started after 9/11, after DHS was created and they realized that most people don't have a clue what to do in case of a major emergency. And... looking at what happened in the Gulf States... they still don't.

I don't believe in being paranoid about this. But... what's the harm in being prepared? Yeah... so the folks who bunkered down for the Millennium looked a little silly, but would we have been laughing at them if something bad did happen?

One thing that they don't say on the DHS site that I have seem mentioned on other sites... the people in NO who had emergency kits that included guns and ammo are very happy that they had it. It's sad... pathetic, really. They don't need it because of the desperate souls trying to survive- they needed them because of the animals who are running wild in the streets.

Will Katrina make people think more, plan more for potential emergencies? Probably not, because... well, it could never happen to them, right?
