Rubbish was an explosive issue one day in Florida

A six-foot-long Air Force missile turned up in the back of a rubbish truck recently in this city on the Florida Keys. The truck was making its normal rounds at the Coast Guard Station here when the crew noticed the missile protruding from the garbage. A Navy ordinance team was brought in to remove it. A Coast Guard spokesman said he did not know whether the missile was armed, ''and we sure don't know how it got thrown out with the garbage.''
