It's classified a "secret" but . . . FORE!

Don't worry boys and girls--it could very well hit the United States, and it could contain hazardous materials . . . but FEMA's involved, so I'm sure there are plans in place to deal with the contingencies.

WASHINGTON (AP) — A large U.S. spy satellite has lost power and propulsion and could hit the Earth in late February or March, government officials said Saturday.

The satellite, which no longer be controlled (sic) [hahaha --ed.], could contain hazardous materials, and it is unknown where on the planet it might come down, they said. The officials spoke on condition of anonymity because the information is classified as secret.

Renuart added that, "As it looks like it might re-enter into the North American area," then the U.S. military along with the Homeland Security Department and the Federal Emergency Management Agency will either have to deal with the impact or assist Canadian or Mexican authorities.

No doubt Canada and Mexico are as cheered as I am to hear that Homeland Security and FEMA will be 'dealing' and 'assisting.'
