if you see something, say something, part 2

Recently, I observed a strange green box that eventually turned out to be a traffic counter and wondered about the role of mystery devices in the city, about how there are those who can leave little bits of technology out in the world (the government, corporations) and those who can’t (the rest of us).     

In preparing a response to Derek’s comment on that post this morning, I set out to look for other examples of detonations, and ran across the familiar story of the 2007 Boston bomb scare involving the Aqua Teen Hunger Force ads. But then I found out that the trigger happy Boston police, perhaps disappointed the Aqua Teen Hunger Force ads didn’t blow up decided to try their luck with an identical green traffic counters.
