I was woken up at 4:59 am this morning by my smartphone making the same obnoxious noise I remember from the Emergency Broadcast System!!! WTF! It was an Amber Alert for a kid who was missing from Hays, KS which is 157 miles away from me. I have a terrible time getting back to sleep after being woken up and was sort of ticked off.
Sure enough, I checked online, and Amber Alerts have gone down as another one of those things people sneer at, claiming that they don't really help anybody.
