      I'm in PA but haven't received one of these, probably because my cell phone is an old one.

      If I did receive one of these in the middle of the night, I'd be screaming mad, furious. I already get Amber alerts on cable TV, on radio, and that's enough. This is a hugely poorly designed program. It alienates rather than engages.

        They'll probably fumble along until they get it right. De-shrieking it might be a good start...big_smile
