    Re: Explosions reported near finish line at Boston Marathon

    I just finished reading (slogging) my way through Suspect by Robert Crais. Worst book ever from a great author BUT carefully researched to use the POV of a bomb sniffing dog suffering from PTSD and being retrained as a police dog. Worth reading the first part to learn about how these dogs are trained and how they view it.

    I recall something like this from Beverly Hills Cop (2?) with Eddie Murphy. I remember a scene where he finds something (drugs?) in a crate that had coffee in it. He explains it to the local police dude. Coffee throws off the dogs. Or something like that.

    All "innocent" reasons I assure you.

    My brother trained scent dogs for his local sheriff's department and I used to try to fool them as part of the training. Fun and creative use of the weekend. Plus we used to experiment with scents that would attract/repel bears (who have sniffers superior to dogs).

    No, if they are upset about being oppressed, lessening the oppression would prevent them ever wanting to.

    Fill us in.

    Not trying to be a jerk here, but I don't believe that it can be done.

    The same way Israel does. You put a National Guard station every mile on the border, and the technology to make it very difficult to sneak by. And you punish Mexico for enabling their citizens to violate our sovereignty. And if that doesnt work, then you try something else. Anything is better than the current system.

    The lack of claiming credit makes me think its domestic.

    That's a mighty big IF.

    How do you acquire that knowledge when you have zero clues?
