DeMint says he'll announce a bill within the next two or three weeks to create a national All-Hazards Alert System that would take advantage of technological advances in cell phones, BlackBerries, and the Internet to allow government to provide disaster information in real time -- and to get messages back from stranded citizens. As with New Orleans now, "it would be great to know where all the survivors are," DeMint says.


Riiiight. What a good idea. It's such a good idea because everyone has cell-phones, especially poor people like those we are seeing in New Orleans.

Oh man, that's awful. And it would work so well for those who are under water. I think we should pass a law that says, if you make over x amount, you can't run for office. Obviously, these people are out of touch.
