Good morning Tim,
Your short amusing comment at the start of the show about not parking your car in any "suspicious" places near APEC in case the police decide to blow it up raised a point that I have brought up on a number of occasions.
Why do the authorities blow up things ir order to see if they're explosives? Surely there has to be a better way to examine suspicious packages. Just imagine for a moment if a powerful explosive was left somewhere and the authorities decided to blow it up in order to dispose of it…the devestation such an act could cause would be horrendous.
As I said, there has got to be a better way to deal with suspicious objects than blowing them up…if not for the sake of saving someone's lost luggage, then for the sake of not accidentally causing a much larger problem.
