    “From the interviews with his neighbors, we missed him by five minutes.”

    “You know if we lose another one the Director is going to have our heads.” Jose told the console operator. Even though José was a tenured Federal employee he wasn’t going to risk the loss of his benefits or employment.

    Yu Yan nodded back at her Supervisor. Her assignment to this post started just last week and she wasn’t sure what the Supervisor meant by, ‘have our heads’ or ‘lose another’. She spoke excellent English with barely a trace of an accent but still had some difficulty with American ambiguities. Just today at the cafeteria she had choked on her coffee and was laugh at when she said, “It went down the wrong throat”.

    This story has haunted me for the last month. It is more then a story.....it is a warning. It is more then a warning.....it is green laser illuminating a void, overlooked by the prepping community.
