It seems every other day that traffic is shut down, the city grinds to a halt, and some guy in a bomb suit carries a white cooler into the back of a truck. Then you read about it later on trying to figure out if it was anything to actually worry about, and they tell you they hauled it out to a gun range in the country and blew it up. Am I the only one who thinks that blowing up suspicious packages might not be the wisest way to deal with them? What if a dying millionaire left a cooler full of cash on the sidewalk, or some foreign parent lost their newborn in a uniquely Swedish baby carrier? Then again, I don’t know much about this sort of thing, and I can agree that blowing things up is the coolest way to get rid of them.
