Quick summary an hour in: "Heck of a cyber-job, Brownie".

Nothing surprising here.  If they wanted to be more realistic, they'd include
some Flox Knews pundits calling for waterboarding somebody, anybody, to find
out who was behind it.

Scary part:  Most of these people were at one time in positions where they
would have been making (or not) these same decisions if they'd happened on
their shift.  Unfortunately, until we get over our national obsession with
equating clue with elitism, it's not going to improve.

But then, absolutely nothing that should be a surprise to anybody who didn't
just fall out of a tree.

(WTF quote that just went by - "Hospitals have backup diesel generators, but
only 6-12 hours of fuel". I certainly hope that number is suffering from
pulled-from-orifice syndrome. Heck - *our* day tank has 36 hours of diesel in
it because "power out for 48-72 hours due to ice storm" is a realistic threat
around here.
