    29 Tenn. courthouses receive bomb threats

    http://www.centurylink.net/news/read...&cps=0&lang=en

    MEMPHIS, Tenn. (AP) — Bomb threats to 29 courthouses across Tennessee forced many to be evacuated Tuesday morning, including the federal building in Memphis, but authorities said no explosives were found.

    Tennessee became the fourth state to deal with similar bomb hoaxes. One targeted 28 courthouses in Oregon and similar threats were reported in Nebraska and Washington this month.....more at link.....



    OK, so that's 4 states that have received the same hoax warnings in one month....are these forewarnings, testing the responses?
