    I could see not letting people inside the building, but pulling people off area seems silly unless there was a confirmed threat and not just a suspicious package in building.

    I'm saying that just because a pipe with wires is found in a center doesn't mean there is a threat to us. I know what you mean about being cautious and the what-ifs...

    If they are so worried about your personal safety...why do they keep you out 12 hours a day when its 5 degrees out..dark..and a half a foot of snow on the ground??...its a pile of. BS.!

    A couple of summers ago I pulled up a 1700ft driveway and this guy who's about 60 was cutting his grass in the nude. The only thing worse than seeing a naked man is seeing a naked older man.
