While working at my job Friday morning we heard that the whole down town area was shut down due to a bomb scare. There was a suspected pipe bomb in front of a local bank. They had to call in a bomb squad from a town a couple hours away. It turned out to be a PCV pipe capped at both ends. What was inside? Someones muskie lure! ROFLMA! True story. We were all wondering if someone was going to go and claim their lost muskie lure. They can be pretty expensive!

I would say more the media for this. We are inundated with news coverage of pipe bombs everday. Plus the mailbox bomber was from MN.

Yep, and northern MN besides! That's why the pipe bomb was so funny to me. However, have to say, and you may not believe this, but we have a lot of smart kids up here, and not all of them are well adjusted. There is a very high crime rate and it is I think the poorest county in the state. I personally know one kid that was arrested about 10 years ago for making bombs. I'm friends with his parents even and they are very wonderful. I don't think anyone up here thought it was a terrorist attack to be honest, but more than likely if it was a bomb a troubled kids experiment.
