Rush Limbaugh

This isn't the kind of explosiveness Rush Limbaugh is known for.

The Palm Beach County Sherriff's Office bomb squad was dispatched to the talk-radio host's Florida home today after a suspicious package—apparently wires were visible—showed up in the mail and Limbaugh's security team called authorities.

So, what did they discover?

No harm, no foul.

The suspect package turned out to be an electronic plaque having something to do with Abraham Lincoln assassin John Wilkes Booth (that's all the detail available on that, sorry), which was sent to Limbaugh by a fan in Pennsylvania for business-opportunity-related purposes, according to Palm Beach Police spokesman Fred Hess.

No charges will be filed against the sender—who was very apologetic, Hess said—because no crime was committed.

Whether or not Limbaugh wants anything to do with the package, which was deemed safe to open, is up to him.
