Like living down the street from Dr. Evil


Neighbors of Vice President Dick Cheney are being shaken and rattled at least once a day by mysterious blasts on the grounds of the U.S. Naval Observatory where Cheney lives.

The Navy says the explosions are part of a construction project that has been going on for several months now, but won’t say more because the project is classified.

More. Thanks to Michael Monnens for the heads up.
