“DHS, this is Outlook. Outlook say hello to DHS”

Or Thunderbird. Or Eudora. Or a blog. Or a wiki. Or Basecamp. From today’s Wall Street Journal “Washington Wire” column (link unavailable)

TECHNICALLY CHALLENGED: Among other woes at Homeland Security,
the inspector general’s office says it can’t widely distribute
electronic announcements of new watchdog reports. A spokeswoman
explains the department lacks capacity to create a mass email list
, (emphasis mine) and
“We don’t have a fix at this point.” Former Inspector General Clark
Kent Ervin calls circulating such information crucial.

So……the people who are supposed to be keeping us safe from the bad guys can’t figure out how to mass e-mail a PDF file. Great.
