    Emergency services deduce 'banana' in pine tree is geocache

    I wonder who could've put that there...

    LINCOLN, Neb. (AP) Emergency personnel and a bomb disposal expert have determined that a suspicious "banana" hanging in a pine tree in Nebraska is simply a harmless geocache.

    The Lincoln Journal Star reports ( ) that a utility worker spotted the device wrapped in yellow tape and attached to a wire on Tuesday in northeast Lincoln.

    The worker called 911.

    Police, firefighters and a bomb technician determined the "banana" wasn't a bomb, but a prize hunted by people on geocaching quests.

    Geocachers across the world use GPS devices to track and find the hidden objects.

    Lincoln fire investigator Chuck Schweitzer says city bomb technicians have been out on similar calls through the years as geocaching has grown in popularity.

    How much did that determination cost?
    How many man hours to determine that a harmless object was in fact harmless?
    Liberty is lost through complacency and a subservient mindset. When we accept or even welcome automobile checkpoints, random searches, mandatory identification cards, and paramilitary police in our streets, we have lost a vital part of our American heritage. America was born of protest, revolution, and mistrust of government. Subservient societies neither maintain nor deserve freedom for long.
