News and views as we chronicle the coming of the cashless society and more. I'm going to start a wargaming excercise contemplating what would happen to us if in fact the US were to be subjected to a HEMP, or High altitude ElectroMagnetic Pulse attack. What would happen and how would people react to the sudden loss of power and technology as we have become accustomed to it today? We're going to pretend that you were stuck someplace on a Saturday afternoon with your family. Were you prepared, and if so what would you do? We'll look at the geopolitical consequences and resulting actions by how we respond to such an event. This game will continue on for several weekly episodes, so get your notebooks out and start planning your responses. You'll have an opportunity to present comments and suggetsions as to how you think the game should play itself out.
