The article was written about a month ago, but due to weather delays it actually happened today (June 4).

$700,000!!!! I can think of other things to spend that on. Waste of money and time. No one can predict what will happen if another situation arises. All these drills do not have the same feeling when things are going on for real. Its a completely different feeling. Even for inflight personnel. They can go through all the training they want, but you will still have those who freeze in the moment of an emergencey. I've seen this first hand.

So should we not train them at all? In anything? Using your argument we should show them where the coffee makers are and send them off.

Ya!!!!.....Helping to pay for another mansion for the TILTONS.

I wonder if Haliburton got a kick back after all they are benifiting from a lot of things that are done in the name of TERROISIM.
