Original Message Last week I attended a graduate student presentation on mass evacuation planning. The DHS has been funding some research into controlling and planning mass evacuations, specifically from metropolitan Chicago. This isn't necessarily out of the ordinary, but I've witnessed a couple other things that make this too interesting to ignore.

Some observations:

-Recently I've witnessed the police conducting operations along the interstate. Twice I've seen them position one cruiser at every on-ramp for several miles. They weren't blocking anything, just sitting there. Are they practicing for a mass evacuation?

-The public alert system is being tested constantly. Just about every other night it happens during prime time TV.

Anyone else have some other observations or confirmation of these things, or am I just spending too much time on GLP?
