MINNEAPOLIS - SNIPPET: "According to the Minneapolis Police Department, more than 100 loud booms have been heard since last summer, always at night, and often on a Wednesday or a Friday.
The most recent reports are all coming from a stretch along the Mississippi River, between Lake Street and the Ford bridge.
About half the reports turn out to be either electrical transformers or fireworks -- but the other half are unidentified exploding objects."

There was a story like this a while back. They arrested a guy for shooting off fireworks and the “mysterious explosions” stopped.

Muzzl’em bomb factory doing quality control? Or ‘work-related’ accidents?

Let’s apply a little Jack Pine logic here: We have explosions, on a river, a mile downstream of the U (that’s the University of Minnesota for those of you southerners). How long does the fuse on the cherry bomb floating on a 2x4 need to be?
