Hope all is well in NYC

Well, looks like the mayor needs to lower the skyscrapers and other tall
buildings so that the walk down isn't so bad next time.

I think it was some friendly hackers giving us a heads up that the grid was
not as well protected as claimed.  Better our guys warning us than the real
thing.  Sitting next to a FEMA person watching the telly was wrenching,
"they told us that the switching and other problems were fixed, they did
nothing!"  But it was nice that even the FOX dinglebrains realized the
problem of Homeland Security is more than just National Guard people at Nuke
plants without bullets in their guns...

Sorry that so many people had to risk dehydration and assault in the big
cities to make the powers that be see that something must be done for the
infrastructure.  Hopefully the need for greenspace will not be forgotten.

Food availability within the large cities is homeland security.  Also I
wondered, how can you boil water if there are no open spaces and all your
appliances are electric???  No woods to cut for firewood to boil the
untreated water except in parks and would the police arrest you?

Blessings to all,
