(Newser) – The man who threw a book at President Obama at a rally Sunday was an over-exuberant author, not a security threat, the Secret Service says.

"A book isn't considered a dangerous object," a Secret Service rep explains. "The person threw a book on stage and our agents acted appropriately." But that guy who streaked? Not so appropriate.
