DC post office "bomb"
WASHINGTON D.C. — A foul-smelling package that led to the evacuation of a post office next to the Smithsonian's National Postal Museum contained two cans of spinach and a dirty diaper, authorities said.
"No wonder it smelled," said Deborah Yackley, a spokeswoman for the U.S. Postal Service. "I don't know why it was being mailed."
A postal worker alerted police shortly before 11 a.m. after spotting the smelly package sitting on a counter with no one around to claim it, authorities said. The package had no postage and no address.
District of Columbia police bomb technicians X-rayed the package and a hazardous materials team inspected it before determining that it contained nothing dangerous. The evacuation lasted several hours.
Nothing Dangerous?? depends on your point of view.

And in case you don't speak Latin.......If you want peace, prepare for war.
I've been places, seen and done things that would make most cry. I've fought along side and against better men then most I come across day to day, i've put my life on the line more then once for things you take for granted and for those you have lost respect for. I don't tell you this for your pity or respect but for you to remember me.
