The Catalina missile a boy scout conspiracy?

An explanation for the spectacular missile contrail that appeared in the Los Angeles sky last night continues to prove elusive. Was the rocket—which appears to have been fired from the surface of the Pacific some thirty-five miles north of Catalina Island—an errant Air Force munition? A missile-defense target rocket run amok? Or even a veiled warning to the Asian states president Obama is visiting this week that the US holds the full clout of its ballistic missile stockpile? But perhaps there’s a simpler explanation: boy scout and model-rocketry record-holder Jacob Smith has struck again.
