this is only a test

So the news today is that the FCC has approved a system so the government can send everyone text messages when there’s some kind of horrific emergency. The brain trusts on the morning news shows were quick to point out how easy this will be because “everyone knows how to text.” Indeed. I can’t help but envision just how our future emergency text messaging system will go down.
