My Little Pony on the Go-Boom

9:10 AM -- Authorities in the Sunshine State are getting serious about careless kids. Today's New York Times carries the following AP item:

    Authorities blew up a stuffed pony -- determined to be a ''suspicious device'' -- after it was found outside a central Florida school. The Orange County Sheriff's Office reported that the toy was found near the Waterbridge Elementary School Tuesday morning.

    No one was allowed in or out of the building while bomb disposal experts destroyed the stuffed animal. It was ultimately deemed ''non-threatening.''

    No injuries were reported.
I can remember simpler, yet happier, times, when grade schools had lost-and-founds. Injuries were pretty much unheard of.
