That sent Hawaii missile alert, just hours before alert went out.4:35 pm on January 17, 2018 Email Llewellyn H. Rockwell, Jr.
Writes Carlisle Branch:
If this is true, I don’t think the man should have been reassigned. The person responsible for accepting and maintaining the software should have been let go.
That’s just a horrible user interface and probably not limited to that single drop down menu. It was a accident waiting to happen and they should have seen it coming.
That mess up was much bigger than the guy that made the wrong selection.
My guess is that someone wanted someone blamed quickly so no one would look to hard.9:27 am on January 17, 2018 Email Llewellyn H. Rockwell, Jr.
The Hawaii Emergency Management Agency [HEMA] is the only organization in HI approved by FEMA to use IPAWS and HEMA plans to test ‘the first business day of every month @ 1145AM’, but some guy decides to do a test on a Saturday in the middle of the month at breakfast time? Why was he looking at the options available in the first place?1:07 pm on January 15, 2018 Email Llewellyn H. Rockwell, Jr.
Writes Bill G.:
Re the Brookhiser tweet. Brookiser’s own Hamilton biography was obviously from a pro- “energetic” government position.
I was reminded of a blog post of his on NR from the 2008 primary.
The last line: ” Ron Paul is a pencil head, leading a jacquerie of wicked idiots.” I remember at the time having to refresh my memory of “jacquerie.” (The nobles’ sneering terms for the peasants revolting (admittedly brutally) against taxes and conscription in 14th Century France.) No idea what a “pencil head” might be. But the tone seems to be that “wicked idiots” should know their place.
Thanks for your great work.11:43 am on January 15, 2018 Email Llewellyn H. Rockwell, Jr.
