Posted on 01/27/2011 8:43:44 AM PST by ButThreeLeftsDo
One Main Place in Dallas is being evacuated after a bomb-sniffing dog hit on a package.
The on-site dog smelled something suspicious in a FedEx package and notified his handlers.
The area around the office building, located at 1201 Main Street, is being blocked off and the building evacuated.
A Dallas police ordinance squad is headed to the location, police said.
Dogs sniff packages all the time. As long as they're tall enough to reach a crotch.
Now that’s funny!
“Companies in the building include CNN, Bank of America, Fox News and several high-tech companies.”
Hmmmmm......count down to blaming a Tea Party member and/or Sarah Palin begins in 3..2..1..
LOL, that's pretty funny.
Seriously, the way that dogs are usually trained to do this is to simply sit.
The suspicious package was found in the building’s basement.
The Dallas Police Department’s bomb squad was headed to the building.
5 blocks around the building evacuated

As of 10:14 a.m., the building was not fully evacuated.
The building is located at 1201 Main Street in downtown Dallas. Bank of America is one of the building’s key tenants, according to DPD officials.
A significant portion of the building is data space, while the plaza level houses an assortment of retailers and restaurants, including Treebirds, Coulters BBQ, Blimpies and Allstate, according to commercial leasing specialists familiar with the property.
Super Bowl week is going to be a real fun time around here, NOT!
Homemade paper and coarse cotton twine? Must be those Amish again. /obligatory Amish joke.
Hmmmm......might actually be something.
I hope all is well in Dallas....
What kind of reaction would the left have if a gay,anti-capitalist Islam terrorist bombed an abortion clinic???
Who would trump who on the victim card??
5 freeking block radius?? Good grief, how the hell big was the FedEx truck it came in, a semi load?
It’s over, employees are returning to the Building.
Could have been a dry run for Super Bowl week.
Even if you're right - and you probably are - it WON'T stop the MSM from blaming conservatives until we can PROVE we're not guilty. Only liberals are 'innocent until proven guilty'... Krugman's warming up the hate machine...
So, what was it?
Don’t know, I just turned on the TV real quick, and saw that the employees were returning and the evacuation was cancelled.
