Oh, the irony

The Department of Homeland Security would like to remind everyone that September is National Preparedness Month.

Their slogan: "Get a Kit, Make a Plan, Be Informed and Get Involved."

And their 9/2 Tip of the Day (subtitled - without a hint of irony - "Oh, the places you'll go"): "Pick a place to meet after a disaster. Designate two meeting places. Choose one right outside your home, in case of a sudden household emergency, such as a fire. The second place you choose needs to be outside your neighborhood, in the event that it is not safe to stay near or return to your home."

We're sure the victims of Katrina are grateful for the advice. Maybe the DHS could airlift them some of those kits they mentioned?
