After stumbling upon a suspicious looking bundle somewhere down in South Florida, the congressional staffer did exactly as Homeland Security has instructed — who knew anyone actually paid attention to those “if you see something, say something” ads plastered just about everywhere? — alerting the proper authorities about the puzzling parcel.

No word on how much weed the Miami Police Department recovered at the scene. Or whether Rep. John L. Mica, R-Fla., angrily flung a pristine pack of rolling papers into the waves a little bit further up the beach.
