Funny I didn't hear about this on the news today. Only heard about someone mailing firecrackers that didn't go off to various politicians.

Yes, the plumbing bombs.
You mean those talcum power “bombs?”
What size is a Poe???
Damned auto-correct (powder)!
Probably powder puffs packed by poofters.
Ship 1,000 ft plus
Don’t worry, I read through it as powder the first time. Likely everyone else did too!
What the heck is it? Was Edgar Allen really big?
I think Huron to something.
Erie how the FakeNews media preferred to cover #FakeBombHoax, over this winning news.
Wow! Improving the throughput of the Great Lakes waterway system is fantastic and has to be good for moving bulk materials, manufactured goods, and exports.
President Trump is amazing...he thinks of everything!
Lots of construction jobs in the soo.
Poe lock accommodates 1,000 foot long vessels. Grain and iron ore are the biggest products hauled through the lock.
Wiki --> "The Soo Locks (sometimes spelled Sault Locks, but pronounced "soo") are a set of parallel locks, operated and maintained by the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, Detroit District, which enable ships to travel between Lake Superior and the lower Great Lakes. They are located on the St. Marys River between Lake Superior and Lake Huron, between the Upper Peninsula of the US state of Michigan and the Canadian province of Ontario. They bypass the rapids of the river, where the water falls 21 feet. The locks pass an average of 10,000 ships per year, despite being closed during the winter from January through March, when ice shuts down shipping on the Great Lakes. The winter closure period is used to inspect and maintain the locks."
I think your Michigan a lake.
No, that’s orlando be poe until Disney showed up.
What is the "soo?" Nickname for Sault Ste. Marie?
This was a major infrastructure bill (waterworks), that passed 99-1 in the Senate, because it brings so many wanted projects to so many regions.
If that had been the lede, many local news sources might see that long sought local projects were finally realized, and there was a danger that local voters would find out that President Trump had delivered bigly again.
Also buried by the hoax bombs, was the announcement of the first Arctic Ocean oil project - which is going to save the Trans-Alaska Pipeline, and enrich the Native American population up there for a generation.
