Comments: Stop it. I'm working.

As ever, way too much for me to comment on at once so I'm cherry-picking. :)

Re: the closing of the Peace Arch border crossing - interviewers determined she didn't know the grenade was in the car, the grenade probably belonged to her husband but "soldiers are barred from removing hand grenades and other weaponry from the army post." The woman, originally from Houston, "inadvertently followed signs to Vancouver, B.C., which led her north to the border, about 400 kilometres in the wrong direction." So in conclusion, she's probably innocent but she's still a ditsy idiot.

I know. I should make shorter posts. :)

As someone who gets lost often, I have sympathy for her.

But I'd like to know why her husband thought it was a good idea to have a grenade in the car.
