    Not forgetting yesterdays bomb threat either, it seems like a series of threats happening.

    PHOENIX (AP) -- No explosives were found on a Southwest Airlines plane that was diverted to Phoenix with 143 passengers on board, authorities said.

    The FBI said Monday that an afternoon flight from Los Angeles to Austin, Texas, landed in Phoenix after someone called in a bomb threat.

    How big was the explosion at the airport? The article says that there was no fire or smoke. But the electric was out at one concourse.

    I'm guessing that all the threats might be related? Odd choice of targets.

    A government building, an airport, in another state a college. And possibly an airplane.
    Just when I think that I have seen the most depraved things a human can do to another human, somebody posts a new story...........

    http://www.usatoday.com/story/news/n...hreat/2411359/

    Princeton University ordered the campus evacuated Tuesday due to a bomb threat to "multiple unspecified campus buildings."

    A posting on the university website at 10:26 a.m. ET directed all students and employees to go home and "do not return to campus for any reason until advised otherwise."

    The university said it is investigating the incident with "local, state and federal law enforcement agencies."...........more...

    http://www.reuters.com/article/2013/...0EN0MT20130611

    Sounds like this may have been a maintenance problem, not related to the other threats. Coincidental that it happened just at this time though.

    They are trying to find out if all the threats are related:

    Four state buildings reopen after evacuation in Atlanta

    http://www.cbsnews.com/8301-201_162-...on-in-atlanta/

    Investigators are working to determine where the threat originated from.

    There have been a series of evacuations across the United States Tuesday morning. Richmond International Airport has reopened its terminal following a threat that prompted an evacuation earlier.

    Princeton University reopens after bomb threat

    http://centurylink.net/news/read/cat...s_after_bom-ap

    Princeton issued a statement saying the bomb threat was one of a number of threats around the country Tuesday. But a university spokesman said he was unaware of anything linking them.
    It seems the Atlanta airport occurrence was some type of power failure. The other threats coming at the same time are suspicious to me...could be one person, group, or coordination of several of them.
