A police bomb squad unit was called to a Seattle Times newspaper box Sunday morning after a Times delivery driver found a suspicious object in the box, the paper reported.
The device was found in a box on Main Street in Bothell, Wash., at about 3:30 a.m. and prompted the closing of a section of the street as police investigated and later "disrupted" the device, police said.
The Times reported that it was unclear if the object was a real bomb or not. The FBI, however, was called in and is investigating.

Bomb squad called after suspicious device found in Seattle Times newspaper box
Authorities need to take these things seriously -- Seattle is home to a lot of crazy anarchists after all -- but I'd bet it wasn't a real explosive device.
