I noted this morning that a false alarm at the Miami airport caused an evacuation this morning.

Bill Jempty e-mails to note the cause: Bomb at MIA? Nope. Human cremains

A dead person in a box disrupted air travel at Miami International Airport Monday morning.

Concourse F was closed about 6 a.m. after a passenger tried to check a bag containing the ashes of a loved one. The luggage turned some heads while passing through a machine designed to check for explosives, Transportation Security Administration officials said.

‘’Our officers are highly trained to look for what we call IEDs, or improvised explosive devices,'’ said Sari Koshetz, a TSA spokeswoman. “A combination of items in the bag looked suspicious.'’

The items, Koshetz said, included ashes in a box.

It always seems to add up to humor for the TSA…
