ok, people, I gotta be at my worst level of sarcasm   re paranoia:

Next, are Boston (area) police going to
investigate possible bombs in other electronic /
blinking LED / circuit board devices..... such as....

- traffic lights made of multiple super-bright LEDs,

- local police (rented?) street "folding board"
       flashing (incandescent lights)  "your speed is..." signs,

- bank  scrolling LED signs showing the time & temperature & whatever ads.

and what if  [I am NOT proposing that anyone do it]
someone mounted an animated Pacman (flashing LEDs)  display
on Boston PD HQ?

granted,  WTBS's campaign was placed on critical bridges, etc,
but why haven't other cities found it necessary to react so violently ?
Are Boston area  people so different  in attitudes from say, Austin TX?

or are we aroun Boston subconsciously feeling guilty for 9-11 & the NYC WTC,
like trying to re-earn the favor of the country by watching extra

end political rant from a non-political person.
