Morning Fun on 7th Street

Walking into work this morning I had to route around a bomb threat at the Jewelry Theater Building. 7th Street is closed between Broadway and Olive. LAPD looks to have first responded soon after 8am, though, so they should be clearing the scene shortly.

While taking this picture from a good half-block away I had an LAPD officer ask me what it was for. He then said something about how they don't know how big the magnet is, implying that somehow me taking a picture several hundred feet away from the building could set off a bomb inside. Right...
