In a column in Tuesdays Pittsburgh Tribune-Review columnist Dimitri
Vassilaros wrote some nice words about the FCC:

Emergency Management Agency. Admittedly, that's not much of a hint. Not a
at all, actually, given FEMA's absolutely abysmal performance before, during

So of course, FEMA now is trying to get that agency, the Federal
Communications Commission, under its control during emergencies.
