Your Tax Dollars Working Wisely

This one I like:

…the government planned to announce today that it will supply hazard warning radios to all 97,000 public schools in the nation.
(snip)
The Homeland Security Department now has decided to provide $5 million to make sure every public school has such radios, NOAA Administrator Conrad Lautenbacher said.

Originally conceived to convey weather warnings, the system now covers all hazards – including terrorism, abducted children and derailed trains carrying toxic materials.

Now, I know that we rarely have tornadoes in this area, but we do have periods of heavy snow and/or blizzard-type weather.  Having lived for an extended period in a traditional tornado alley area, I know what it means to have that early warning.

As Martha would say, “It’s a good thing”.
