Man, this story just gets better all the time. My favorite part is how the LiteBrite Bombs were up for apparently 2 weeks before anyone freaked out! Not to mention the other 8 cities where the same thing went off with out a hitch. Oh, Boston, where has your funny gone?
It should have been communicated to all responsible for public safety that the devices were advertising. If I were responsible for public safety, and I got reports of strange electronic boxes, seemingly with no purpose for being there, placed in locations such as under bridges, I would think the only responsible thing to do would be to treat them as possible explosives.
