TOPOFF4 Ends, Drills/MASCAL, The Fake "Left"

Drill is a starting point for fixes (TOPOFF4 Over)

It will take months, maybe years, before Portland and state officials learn what went right -- and wrong -- during the weeklong emergency preparedness drill that concluded Friday. But public health officials can already point to systems that need fixes before a real, large-scale emergency hits.
For one, officials must get better at making highly technical health and safety information clear to the public, said Susan Allan, Oregon's public health director. For another, a supply chain that now involves as many five links needs streamlining to hustle critical supplies to hospitals.
"These are natural problems. These are things that would happen in any state. But we're all new to this," Allan said. "It's good that we're doing this, because we have an opportunity to get it right before it may hurt somebody if we don't get it right." (cont...)

"After the instigators were ejected, Maher told his panelists — MSNBC's Chris Matthews, Los Angeles Times columnist Joel Stein and Congresswoman Sheila Jackson — that they often linger outside his studio to share 9/11 conspiracy theories with him and try to get into the show.
"It's the only time I defend Bush," he said." (along with rest of the phony "Left")
