Expert panel National disaster alert system in disarray... very
comforting, especially in light of the evacuation instructions we received in
the mail yesterday in case Indian Point makes like Three Mile Island on us...
looking at the escape routes they outline and considering the crowds that will
need to use them, I've determined that it would be faster to walk to escape the
area... in fact, I think it would be faster to swim.
peripherally related: For a NON-Hollywood depiction of what life would be like after a major global Terror/Disaster, rent this obscure little British film: Threads (1985) http://www.ibp-intl.demon.co.uk/nuke/threads.html "the connections [threads] that make society strong also make it vulnerable"
