Yeah, the fringes seem to be running with "none exploded, so this isn't news. Maybe incompetent, probably intentionally non-functional, either way definitely not news."

But that's BS. If the packages had nooses they would pose no personal danger, but that is obiously a threatening message. And if it happens to a dozen prominent members of one party, it's obviously news.
