 Salon.com People | Move over "Heartland," here comes "Homeland"
While the word homeland itself is on the ancient side, "homeland security" has been used in our homeland only since the late '90s and primarily in military circles.
Maybe Bush and his advisors decided to go with homeland because they were deaf to the word's negative, historical associations but all ears to the media successes of homeland's first cousin: Heartland.
Homeland evokes images of us huddling in front of a hearth in a house on the prairie, the consonants of the last syllable even sketching (well, they do for me) the sense of a barrier that others mustn't ever cross.

Ridge said he wanted to "debunk the myth" that his agency was responsible for repeatedly raising the alert under a color-coded system he unveiled in 2002.
The threat level was last raised on a nationwide scale in December 2003, to orange from yellow — or "elevated" risk — where the alert level is now.
In most cases, Ridge said Homeland Security officials didn't want to raise the level because they knew local governments and businesses would have to spend money putting temporary security upgrades in place.

 No More Orange, Yellow and Red? - Newsweek National News - MSNBC.com
By the same token, the public downgrading such as was announced last week—when Homeland Security scrapped the "Orange" alert for the current lower-level Yellow—arguably puts terrorists on notice that defensive measures have been reduced, and thereby might prod them to strike.
Cox said that, at a minimum, Homeland Security should scrap the one-size-fits-all color-coded approach and adopt a more nuanced system in which there are individualized warnings for particular geographic regions or economic sectors about which there might actually be hard intelligence.
Beyond that, he said, Homeland Security officials should move toward a revamped system in which specific security protocols are spelled out for state and local law-enforcement officials—and alerts to the public are provided only when there was a particular reason for it.

Long after the 2001 attacks on New York and Washington, homeland security spending across the country remains bogged down by administrative problems, back orders for equipment and long timelines to implement new technology, such as communications systems.
Local authorities said the ranking is misleading because it does not reflect that they have committed 80 percent of their funds, or $115 million, to projects underway for the District and its suburbs in Maryland and Northern Virginia.
In response to a series of critical reports by Congress and its own inspector general, the Homeland Security Department streamlined grant procedures last year; imposed deadlines for spending; approved checklists for equipment purchases; and increased state reporting requirements.

Thanks, Jonathan: more proof of my point that, (as happened even during Katrina) human nature wins out over unexpected technological obstacles: people can and will use whatever communication devices at their command, and in whichever way is feasible at the moment, to communicate with each other when they want to.
In addition to homeland security and natural disasters, this could be invaluable as part of a state's efforts to create "surge capacity" to deal with the quantum increase in numbers hospitalized during a flu pandemic.
