I just took an “office safety” online course for work. The course linked off to a YouTube video from Ready Houston on dealing with an “active shooter” situation. After that, the course talked about bomb threats.

While I was on the Tube, I noticed the sheer amount of active shooter advice videos in the related video column.

I also noticed that the Ready Houston video was in part funded by Homeland Security. I wondered: “So, the government will spend money to make videos on surviving attacks, but they won’t actually do anything to prevent the attacks from actually happening.”

Modern American life is weird. It also makes me kinda queasy.
