in Racine Wisconsin [Racine Journal Times] which led to the destruction of an electromechanical blogging device. An article in Forbes indicated that DYI retailer "Home Depot" would recycle used electronics equipment. Forbes probably meant "Office Depot", an electronics retailer down the street from "Home Depot." So a misguided soul left his portable electric typewriter in the parking lot outside of Home Depot, hoping it would be recycled. Perhaps the employees had never seen such a device and couldn't imagine why it would be abandoned outside of their store. So the local police were called and the strange object was destroyed. Now I need to figure out how to get rid of my old Remington in Racine without raising suspicion.
