I could be wrong
But I think that this would be the first time in U.S. history that a bomb was detected at an airport security checkpoint.

Too funny
An article from about alternative casts (i.e. non-plaster/fiberglass options) just made me laugh out loud. In the midst of a very serious explanation of the medical advances made, we get the following:

Ben broke his wrist in mid-March when he tumbled down the family's stairs.

"I fell down and I hurt myself, and I cried and I cried and I cried," Ben explained.
Okay, that's just too funny. First off, the fact that they used "explained," like this kid was outlining the intricacies of a compound fracture. Second, that some reporter (and editor!) felt the need to include that paragraph.
