"Suspicious Packages" Found Throughout Boston (UPDATED, BUMPED)

Michelle has the story.

UPDATE: LGF reports that it was all a "hoax."

UPDATE 2:Any of you who want to pile on the Boston authorities should have some even tougher questions for the folks in the rest of the country:

Turner Broadcasting is expected to issue an apology for causing today's series of bomb scares throughout Boston. A statement emailed to the Globe from Turner Broadcasting said: "The 'packages' in question are magnetic lights that pose no danger. They are part of an outdoor marketing campaign in 10 cities in support of Adult Swim's animated television show Aqua Teen Hunger Force. They have been in place for two to three weeks in Boston, New York, Los Angeles, Chicago, Atlanta, Seattle, Portland, Austin, San Francisco, and Philadelphia. Parent company Turner Broadcasting is in contact with local and federal law enforcement on the exact locations of the billboards. We regret that they were mistakenly thought to pose any danger."
