FRAGILITY OF INFRASTRUCTURE: Reader Kim Sommer sends this via Blackberry:
I'm on my way trying to get back to Bloomington, IN from Indianapolis. Flooding has made a mess. I just got onto hwy 50 from I65. I'm listening to a radio station from Columbus, in. They have no internet feed or cable. Sounds like phones are not 100% . They are finding without the big I network info is not at their fingertips. Its a fragility in the system.
A bit of system-hardening is in order.
