Or They Might Simply Blow Up Your Manuscript

Here's some interesting rejection news from the Left Coast. The article title itself is a riot: Police Explode Briefcase Left for Literary Agent. What do you do when your agent sends your manuscript package to the police who explode it for safety reasons? My favorite line in the article is a quote from the agent: "This guy’s been kind of pestering me to read his stuff." The agent noted that he neither asked for nor wanted the briefcase. (Note to self: Don't pester agent.)

To have your script blown up in the alley after having buildings's like something you'd see in a movie and think, that would so never happen. I suspect that scene is going to make someone good story fodder though probably not the poor writer in question if that computer contained the only copy of his script.
