Arkansas priorities

The Arkansas Department of Emergency Management is using its Twitter account to apprise subscribers of ways to watch Kris Allen on "American Idol."

I s*** you not.

UPDATE: A friendly spokesman for DEM says this was the product of an errant keystroke. (I can relate). She apparently meant to click an item on the TV news page that reported the governor's request for aid for rain-drenched areas. That item appeared next to the American Idol item on the TV station web page. Oops. Wrong item clicked. "I do have other more important things to do than American Idol," she said. Explanation accepted. The Idol post has been removed.

Here's the original post on the DEM page, which, in the Twitter parlance, "reTweeted" a TV station Twitter blurb:
