Residents of Minneapolis will be reminded this weekend that the government is determined to keep the bogus war on terror alive and also relive the overblown anthrax attack of 2001.
On Thursday, the U.S. Postal Service (or government-enforced monopoly) teamed up with the Minnesota Department of Health and announced they will be delivering empty pill bottles in the metropolitan area on Saturday.
“It’s the country’s first full-scale test for postal workers to distribute medicine in case of an anthrax outbreak or other medical emergency,” theAssociated Press explains. “Plans for similar practice runs are in the works in Boston, San Diego, Philadelphia and Louisville, Ky.”
Volunteers will be accompanied by cops during the drill. “The drill will take place Sunday in parts of Minneapolis, St. Paul, Golden Valley, Crystal and Robbinsdale. Volunteers and police officers will handle the delivery. The Health Department says more than 300 volunteers are trained for the task.”
“We’re going to be looking at how quickly it takes us to get the supply in and to different types of households–Apartment buildings versus rural areas and areas where there’s a significant walk to one place to another,” Edward J. Gabriel, Principal Deputy Assistant Secretary for Preparedness and Response (ASPR), U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, told Security Management.
