trashy terror?
Good to know that the town of Dover, New Jersey is securing the homeland via gumball-machine inspections:

[City alderman Frank Poolas] was not, he told the reporters and photographers who assembled in this northern New Jersey town, really all that concerned that candy posed a terrorist threat.

“Our main concern was health. Period,” Mr. Poolas said, explaining why he and some colleagues started a project six months ago to inspect all of the town’s candy and gum vending machines to make sure they were properly licensed.

Sure, he had mentioned terrorism, Mr. Poolas said, but only as a “worst-case scenario.”

If rogue candy wind-ups are causing this much of a fuss, imagine what Dover would make of the Trashball treats being dispensed in Washington DC, pictured above. I’m thinking town council would ban the artistic expression as a public health and/or security risk.
