Then, on one shiny summer evening in 2005 CNN debuted their program The Situation Room…and slowly but surely “Situation Rooms” have been popping up in homes all over the world ever since.  The majority of these rooms come equipped with a minimum of six chairs and a huge touch-screen map that comes in handy for training your kids for impending punditry or just planning that long-awaited family vacation.  And if you chip in a few extra bucks we’re sure your interior decorator just might include an animatronic Wolf Blitzer.  Being prepared for any sitch and having a robot celebrity in your home, what’s more friendly and trendy than that?
