Metro Resumes Red Line Service

Yep, we’re back to “normal” again:

Metro Transit Police bomb technicians X-rayed the box, then safely disrupted it with a water cannon. The box contained paper and cardboard.

That’s right folks, paper and cardboard caused a two hour plus delay on the Red Line right before rush hour. We’re getting ridiculously paranoid.

    The package was marked “Department of Bombland Security”, so it was planted by a sociopath (fortunately not a murderous one). It wasn’t just something accidentally left behind. I think a lot of our “security” is ridiculous, but I’m not sure what the alternative to taking this package seriously was.
