Okay, this is funny. One of the biddies upstairs called the bomb squad because a man walked in, left a briefcase in the lobby, and left. So while we're all outside, jokingly accusing each other of masterminding the incident, coming up with ever-more elaborate schemes to explain why someone would blow up a building in Independence, Ohio, the squad is executing what must have been a hilariously dramatic briefcase-opening procedure. Turns out that the offending accessory belongs to the semi-retired consultant who shares our office. Most likely scenario seems to be that he forgot what he was doing and left it there by mistake. Another terrorist threat neutralized thanks to the vigilance of the people!
