    Here in Space City, Texas, my radio alert led my TV alert by 2 minutes. I thought the nationwide emergency alert was supposed to have been in synchrony -

    My TV alert lagged my radio alert by 2 minutes! A 2 minutes difference in warning is huge. In the event of an actual emergency, those of us listening to radio would have gained 2 minutes ahead of TV viewers!

    By the way, what is up with this nationwide emergency alert? Think they are fixing to get us into some nuclear war or galactic warfare?

    CNN reporting "few glitches" in first nationwide emergency alert test - First nationwide Emergency Alert System test hits a few glitches - CNN.com


    I think "few glitches" is an understatement: I had a 2 minutes difference between my radio alert and my TV alert. This is grave. If it had been an actual emergency, then those of us on radio would have had 2 minutes ahead of those watching TV.

    I doubt anyone will have the time to pick up phone to call you in the event of a nuclear war or a galactic warfare. With our warlikeness, I think it is only fair to give people some kind of chance to save themselves, if need be.

    Movie Independence Day? (Laughs) I will not be surprised at all.

    You know what? I think Paul Krugman who spoke about alien warfare to save economy may just have been a snitch. I think Paul Krugman was simply alerting us of just what Washington Dc was cooking up.
