    McGhee Tyson Air National Guard Base is on lockdown, Tenn

    It's been going on for a while now. Reports of a person carrying a gun and shots fired. I am just not hearing this. They have been sweeping the facility for some time now. Sounds more like a false alarm but just in case.

    Tyson McGhee is Knoxville TN, not far from Oak Ridge and the nuclear weapons facility. This should be taken quite seriously.
    Political tags - such as royalist, communist, democrat, populist, fascist, liberal, conservative, and so forth - are never basic criteria. The human race divides politically into those who want people to be controlled and those who have no such desire.

    Done and gone, a supposed misunderstanding.

    No shots fired, no gunman.

    Not finding a link, but all is good.
    Treat me with respect, I'll treat you with respect. I don't care what color your skin is, your gender, sexual identity, political lean or position about eating beef. Be a decent human.

    Like the 'oops' in Hawaii a few years ago. Can you imagine?

    On the morning of Saturday, January 13, 2018, a ballistic missile alert was issued via the Emergency Alert System and Commercial Mobile Alert System over television, radio, and cellphones in the U.S. state of Hawaii. The alert stated that there was an incoming ballistic missile threat to Hawaii, advised residents to seek shelter, and concluded: "This is not a drill". The message was sent at 8:07 a.m. local time. However, no civil defense outdoor warning sirens were authorized or sounded by the state.
    Thirty-eight minutes later, State officials blamed a miscommunication during a drill at the Hawaii Emergency Management Agency for the first message. Governor David Ige publicly apologized for the erroneous alert. The Federal Communications Commission and the Hawaii House of Representatives launched investigations into the incident, leading to the resignation of the state's emergency management administrator.

    Waiting on a link is like watching paint dry at times. Just like I know something major is happening right now with the Appalachian police, NC, TN and VA are on it. One said something about bringing in bomb squad another chasing cars. I have no idea what is going on. Until an alert or breaking news picks it up.
