Mission accomplished?

Ironically, September is National Preparedness Month. From the National Preparedness Month website:

"Throughout September, the U.S. Department of Homeland Security and the American Red Cross will work with a wide variety of organizations, including local, state and federal government agencies and the private sector, to highlight the importance of emergency preparedness and promote individual involvement through events and activities across the nation."

Thank God DHS wasn't in charge of promoting Africa Malaria Day.
