Typewriters Can Be Dangerous

Sarasota parking garage reopens; suspicious package turns out to be old typewriter: "The Sarasota County parking garage at East and Ringling boulevards reopened at 10:30 a.m. Monday after police blew up a suspicious package that was discovered two hours earlier.

The package contained an old typewriter inside a case that was discovered in the ground floor stairwell on the northwest side of the garage. The typewriter was inside a locked gate that only county employees can access.

Investigators used a remote-controlled robot to detonate the package. All downtown streets around the garage were closed during the investigation and were reopened at 10:30 a.m."

Typewriters aren't dangerous, it's the nut in front of them that you have to worry about.
