CNN reports that DHS is launching a “Ready Kids” emergency prep program. The program itself – costing more than $100 million – sounds pretty pointless. The best part is the following quote, from a report by the Alfred P. Sloan Foundation, in reference to the program website:
The original plan included a Web site that would exist as part of Homeland Security’s Web site. However, it turned out that Homeland Security could not host the READY Web site with confidence that it would be secure and able to withstand high traffic.
Unbelievable. Just unbelievable.
