Duck and cover--I remember that. As if crawling under a desk would save us from a nuclear blast. Scared the willies out of us, though. Go home and talk your dad into digging a bunker in the back yard. Fine use of discretionary income, when the middle class still had some. Get real. A "national" response to a localized terrorist attack will have to be local. Local authorities have to have plans in place, but a "national exercise" makes no sense. But then making sense doesn't seem to be at the top of the Republicans' list.
