Question of the day

Our last question asked: What are some of the weirdest/most interesting things delegates bragged about their states during the official casting of votes at the RNC? There were some clever quips, like Arizona's brag on being the "Hottest state ... for job growth," and then there were comments like Maine's having "only one remaining Democratic federal official" and Rhodes Island's "Ranked 50th-worst on business-friendly climate." Also, we bet you never realized Idaho was known for its potatoes, right?

Kudos to Lucia A. Walinchus of Professional News Services for being the very first to answer correctly (and for pointing out "NV delegate called Vegas the state capital. In fairness no one knows where Carson City is"). Honorable mentions go out to these fine folks for also offering answers: Mark Gibbs (who adds "My pick? Minnesota, Home of Spam"), Natalie Tindall (who liked "Am. Samoa exporter of football players" and "Florida where LeBron got his 1st championship").

As for today's question, here it is: Police recently confiscated what nefarious objects from protesters outside the RNC, and for what reason?
