French Police Lose Bomb...
On Sunday, the French police lost a bomb at Charles de Gaulle Airport in Paris, France. They placed some plastic explosives into the side pocket of a traveller's navy blue suitcase, as part of a training exercise for sniffer dogs.
In the process of the exercise, they lost the explosives, which are now somewhere in the wide world. The police didn't know the destination of the passenger's luggage, and figure it could have left on one of about 90 flights.
That was smart...
I hope the passenger didn't get stopped and arrested at the other end, because the airport officials in the destination city found the explosives. Le pauvre.
So, if you're reading this, and you left CDG Airport on Sunday with a navy blue suitcase, and you find five ounces of explosives in it, please return it to the French police. They will be very happy, merci.

LAME!! Oh man, yeah what if that person was going to the States!?! Holy crap...

Are you going to reply to that American person who posted the angry comment in your blog earlier? Since when have you been attacking the Americans? huh? I'm proCanadian all the way, but I don't go OFF when you make comments about the farce of an American election.

I couldn't believe it when I read that story in the paper. It almost seemed like one of those crazy things you read in a joke book.

As for the Angry American, I don't think that he's comments are worth responding to.
Firstly, I've probably seen more of the States than he has (Washington, Oregon, California, Idaho, Wyoming, Alaska, North Dakota, Ohio, Michigan, New York, Maine, Washington DC, Kentucky, New Jersey, Mass., Conneticut, etc, etc. -we drove across Canada and the US one summer).
Secondly, if my "opinion means absolutely nothing to any American", then why is he so mad??
I could keep going, but his argument is deeply flawed.
