Mass Gov Calls Logan Airport Drill on Sept 11th “Dumb”
What the what? Someone did not think this one through AT ALL? Massport, the Massachusetts Port Authority, held a fire drill at Logan Airport in Boston. A very realistic fire drill with smoke and flames. They held this exercise on September 11th. Did someone forget that the two planes that left the morning of September 11, 2001 and were the planes that took down the two towers of the World Trade Center in New York City took off from Logan Airport?
So, Logan Airport has a big connection to the events of September 11th. I mean really, it was ONLY 12 years ago, how do people not remember these things? And really, ANY type of fire drills on September 11th in any location might not be a good idea. For example, I knew a couple of people traveling on the 11th, both questioned if they should be worried. Even if they were joking, there is a bit of cold hard reality at the the bottom of that question.
The governor of Massachusetts, Deval Patrick called it “dumb”, this is one of the cases, where the word is not the most professional, but it really seems to fit.
