So I called my son's school just out of curiosity. I pretended to be a reporter so they didn't mark something down on DJ's record like wacko parent.
"Can you tell me if you have any kind of plan in place in regards to evacuation due to biological or chemical attack?"
"In case of evacuation, the kids will be taken to the high school."
The high school is about half a mile away. I don't think that's a very efficient plan.
I don't think it will ever come down to the need for an evacuation, but when you read stories with headlines like "CYANIDE ALERT," you want to have your bases covered. Drudge's supersized font terror headlines don't help either.
I'm just about at the saturated point, which means I start tuning these warnings out soon. As a matter of fact, when I get back from lunch I'm going to write about my idea of romantic movies (don't think When Harry Met Sally type movies - you know me better than that) in advance of Get Your Heart On Day tomorrow.
Anyone want to tase my food before I eat it?
note: I have already received several really good entries for the Civil Defense Poster Contest. Get moving!)
