All cities will have a grid of one mile squares laid out on a
map. At each intersection a 180 HP Chrysler gasoline powered
air raid siren ( http://www.victorysiren.com for info) will be
installed and sound continuously until a hazardous condition
requiring public notification is detected. At
such times, all
sirens will shut down to allow citizens to hear the official
instructions from the government. Field tests of this systm
have also demonstrated a tendency toward massive reduction
of the rodent population as a bebeficial side effect.

||Living near a tornado siren that was on a great deal of the morning as it was installed, I can personally say this is a very bad idea.
||The sirens you speak of "is so
powerful that it can reportedly
start fires with just the sound
vibrations it produces. " One on
every intersection, you say? Yup.
||I voted against it but I love the
thinking. I laughed hard.
||There should be a kind of marking
or other axis of appreciation here
in the half bakery rather than (or
in addition to) the For/Against
Since this is a perfectly awful idea
rather than just a dumb or poorly
thought-out one. It should not be
confused with them.
||The typo in the last sentence makes me think this could work on Biebers, too.
||But not Bibers- you need depth charges for
||I always wondered about that "3 o'clock and all's well !" stuff.
||More realistically it's "3 o'clock and I'm not asleep boss, really !"
