Goodness, you’d think the world has come to an end with all the drama surrounding this computer glitch.
People in Ohio, Michigan and 15 other states found themselves temporarily unable to use their food stamp debit-style cards on Saturday, after a routine test of backup systems by vendor Xerox Corp. resulted in a system failure. Xerox announced late in the evening that access has been restored for users in the 17 states affected by the outage, hours after the first problems were reported.
It only lasted hours, yet people were about to panic and riot over it. Folks, this is what happens when you count on someone else, especially the government, to take care of you. People have completely stopped trying to be self-sufficient and ready for the ‘what if’ situation. Being prepared is a thing of the past.
