An I.E.D. placed inside of a news rack exploded this morning outside of Jack in the Box on Venice Boulevard in Palms. Fortunately, the ceramic pipe bomb packed just a little more power than a stuffed and breaded jalapeno, causing “limited property damage,” but no injuries. Too early to blame animal rights fanatics? Never. [LAT via Eater]
