feds moving out of the bomb zone?

This article makes me feel confident in the federal government. Agencies like the FBI and FEMA are moving to the Shenandoah Valley in western Virginia -- and one of the reasons they cite is to not be incinerated should somebody drop a nuclear weapon on Washington, DC.

Such confidence, such inspiration. Such fucking cowardice.

Hey, I have an idea. Let's disperse the ENTIRE federal government away from Washington. We can put the Labor Department in Richmond, VA and the Veterans Affairs Department in Gettysburg, PA, and the State Department in Ocean City, MD, and the Treasury in Delaware (where all the banks and credit cards have their "headquarters" for tax purposes anyway) and the Pentagon in some desert in Nevada (a bit far from Washington, but hey if all the other agencies are gone, it won't matter as much will it?). And better yet, every federal employee can just stay the hell home and work by cellphone and Blackberry. We can save big bucks on federal buildings and office supplies, right? And no nuclear bomb will be able to take out the federal government all at once.

It's taking this trend to the logical, absurd extreme.
