    So I'm supposed to "pledge" to this drill, like I'm supposed to "pledge" not to use plastic, drive a hybrid (while the celebs fly in their private jets-using enough jet fuel to fuel a hummer for a year), etc.....no, I don't pledge to Barrack.

    By the way, if the infrastructure i.e. cell phone towers are destroyed in a disaster, your mobile device will not receive updates from twitter of facebook.
