So Connecticut had a major bomb scare, and nobody bothered to tell Homeland Security, who had no clue it was happening until they saw it on the news. Just as the New Orleans city authorities started sending people to take shelter in the Convention Center, but didn't bother telling FEMA. Michael Brown was lambasted for not having known about the situation at the Convention Center before the networks reported it. Look, it's very simple. If you don't tell people, how are they supposed to know? And if they don't take control of a situation, because nobody bothered to tell them that it existed, whose fault is that? If your house is on fire and you don't call the fire brigade, don't blame them when they don't magically appear to put it out.
