    Still nothing in the online washington post about this, even as a scare/threat.

    Yeah, nutting on NBC 4 or ABC 7. Nor DCist. That means MetroBlogging DC had a news scoop and exclusive! Woohoo!

    Any commentary from those evacuated?

    I was on the very exact Metrorail car that this fake bomb scare occurred on this evening and am very very scared. The Metro staff also tried to rake us to get new fare cards after we were forced off the train too and then they said to take a Metrobus, but there was no coordination so the Metrobus tried to charge us money too! They do not know how to handle any bomb scare, real nor fake!!!

    I do have a real valid e-mail, but I’m not going to give it away and have everyone e-mailing me and getting more junk e-mail as a result.

    Any word on the “device” that was found outside the Bank of America building in the 5207 Wisconsin Ave. NW? I saw it closed down and never heard what the result was. Anyone else?
