Wonder how many of you caught this eposode on ABC-TV during Wednesday's funeral procession. Cokie Roberts, late NPR spincaster, related some details of the evacuation of the Capitol when the KY governor's plane strayed into restricted DC airspace.

Seems that the evacuation order went out to Blackberry PDA's of all House members, but the alert software failed to similarly inform the Senate side.

As soon as the Secret Service folks became aware of this lapse, panic set in as they ran around the Capitol building yelling "WHERE'S HILLARY??? WE GOTTA GET HILLARY OUT OF HERE!!!"

The story was dropped immediately, and I've not seen it resurface anywhere.
