SATURN Survives, Sort of

Remember former Gov. Jane Swift's (R-FlagBearer) SATURN (Statewide Anti-Terrorism Unified Response Network) anti-terrorism site we told you about last year? And how we wrote that Willard Mitt and Ed "Easy on Crime" Flynn had let the site fall into disrepair? (see RiaF, 11/25/2003)

Shortly thereafter, media reports stated that Team Reform was both scrapping (source: Boston Globe, 1/23/2004) and saving SATURN. (source: Boston Herald, 1/24/2004)

Well, we recently went back to our original post to check just how snazzy the Saturn site had become. And guess what we found? All of the links we had compiled showing weak spots on the SATURN site were dead!

Team Reform had reformed the site to make us look like … weanies. Here we were, directing loyal readers to links that no longer worked.

How unfair is that?

Unfortunately, what the Fraud Governor doesn't know is that we weren't the only site linking to SATURN. The Waltham Fire Department still links there, as does the U.S. Department of Homeland Security.

Oh well. But they really made us look silly.

Not really, because what Team Reform forgot is that once a site lives on the web for a while, it lives on the web, and can be found fairly easily.

Like here.

And here.

And here.

And here.

And here.

This is not to say that Team Reform has killed SATURN all together. As Ed “Easy on Crime” Flynn said, the reports of SATURN’s "demise are greatly exaggerated." (source: Boston Herald, 1/24/2004)


Okay, let’s do this the way they do it on late night TV.

Here’s your former SATURN system.

And here’s your SATURN system on Romney

Any questions?
