Suspicious Package In Cemetery Turns Out To Be Teens' Art Project

By Robert Paul Reyes

"Police in Connecticut said a suspicious item that prompted a bomb squad visit to a cemetery turned out to be an art project.

Hartford police said the bomb squad was called to the Old North Cemetery about 10:30 a.m. and the nearby SAND Elementary school was placed on lock-down until the suspicious device was found to be an art project.


Teens created the art to call attention to places in Hartford that don`t have the attention they deserve."


The teens certainly succeeded in their objective of bringing attention to place that doesn`t draw a lot of visitors. I hate visiting a cemetery, because it reminds me of my ultimate fate.

But the young persons failed to bring attention to themselves as gifted artists. When your art project is mistaken for a bomb, you need to attend remedial art class.

The students art project really bombed, but thank goodness there was no real bomb in the cemetery. But even if there were a real bomb in a cemetery, you can only die once.
