Well, that was odd.....

My daughter was up a bit early this morning and watching Clifford. (7:30 Central time - 8:30 Eastern)


All of the sudden, one of those emergency broadcasts came on.... but it kept repeating... it wasn't a test......

It said that there would be an emergency for the ENTIRE UNITED STATES from 9:30 - 9:45 Eastern time???????

So I hopped online to see if anyone else mentioned this.....

Nothing. The breaking news was all Paris Hilton......

Since it seems unlikely that the govt. could pinpoint the time, but not the location of an attack.....

And since if a giant meteor was headed for us I think someone would have mentioned it by now.....

I'll assume it was just a bizarre typo on the part of the local PBS station....

Besides, if it WAS a real emergency, why would they only do it in text? During CLIFFORD-- a show for pre-schoolers??? That would be WORSE than useless....... =)
