"We had a hospital full of people who couldn't leave. We had a staff that had spent the night that couldn't leave, and the day staff that couldn't get into the hospital. That was a scenario we had never anticipated

When the government gets involved in common sense decisions, all bets are off. What a clusterfark.

London - lockdown the city when Bush comes to town.

Shanghai -- just put metal detectors at the floor of the hotel where the heads of China, Uzbekistan, Iran, Mongolia, Pakistan meet in the building. Tourists could still take the elevator to the top floor observation deck and eat in the food court in the building.
If the bombers hadn't been Caucasians, the authorities might have turned off the power and water to the city, too, and silenced TV, radio and phone service.

There was no lock-down. it was a request to stay inside. they cannot, yet, force a lock-down in the USA.   Even in school shootings or whatever, if yuo want to leave, they cannot detain you.  it is always a request masquerading as an order.   The most they can do is cordon off a specific crime scene while documenting evidence.

I have to give MUCH kudos to the first responders, doctors, nurses and everyone else involved.  As horrible as it was, it could have been worse.  I'm not saying DON'T tell a soldier "Thank you for your service", but maybe also remember to tell that to firemen, doctors, etc.
