    I may have been wrong about law enforcement, but they did have to get permission from the city to place the ads. I'd be willing to bet that it was Boston's fault for failing to keep the lines of communication open, but, as with the Big Dig, they're blaming everyone else.

    That's typical with a bunch of loser Damnocrats. I'm just waiting for them to have Teddy Kennedy appropriate the much needed Federal funds for a sophisticated anti-elctronics screening system. At least this won't cost is all a trillion dollars like the big dig did.

    I grew up there in the 60's and 70's, and remember when Gov. Sargent issued an Executive Decree banning all new road construction within Route 128. They had new road rights of ways purchased, embankments already filled for miles, elevated ramps alredy constructed, and he shut the entire process down with the stroke of his pen. The resulting traffic nightmare caused a huge corporate flight out to Rte 128, which they renamed Rte. 95 to suck in more Federal dollars. This created 2-4 hour traffic jams at certain hours, M-F. The Big Dig was then the only solution to fix the problem. They painted themselves into a corner with their roadway system and you and I had to pay for it.

    I cant believe they are trying to arrest people for it. Its freaking obvious its not a bomb. But they are trying to obscure the fact that these officers are either incompetent or unprepared to deal with this.

    LA Times faces legal action over news-stand 'bomb' alert

    Feb 01 2:32 PM US/Eastern

    The Los Angeles Times and movie studio Paramount could face a federal lawsuit after a publicity stunt to promote "Mission: Impossible III" sparked a bomb scare, the paper reported.

    Around 4,500 sidewalk newspaper boxes across California were rigged with devices last April that played the "Mission: Impossible" theme when customers opened them in the build-up to the release of the Tom Cruise blockbuster.

    But several customers thought the music players were bombs and reported them to law enforcement officials. An arson squad blew up one of the newspaper boxes in Santa Clarita, just north of Los Angeles, as a precaution.

    In West Los Angeles, federal police at the Veterans Affairs Medical Center called the bomb squad after a newspaper buyer spotted wires rigged to the music player within the box. Hospital officials evacuated the building.

    The Times quoted assistant US attorney in Los Angeles Linda Kontos as saying that the hospital had suffered around 93,000 dollars in losses because of the evacuation.

    In letters sent to The Times and Paramount, Kontos said her office would recommend that the government sue the newspaper and studio, The Times reported.

    Kontos however said her department would provide both parties "with the opportunity to resolve the allegations" without litigation.

    News of the lawsuit comes as authorities in Boston pledged to take action over a marketing stunt that sparked a full-scale security alert in the city on Wednesday. Two men have been charged with placing a hoax device after allegedly planting several flashing circuit boards around Boston to promote a late-night animated program on Turner Broadcasting's System's Cartoon Network.
