Bomb Threat at the Wisconsin State Capitol

























Three members of Letters in Bottles happened to be roaming downtown Madison.  Police outside the capitol building tell us the building is closed off - and they can't tell us why.  The news crews, though, have said a bomb threat was called in and nobody was hurt.  State Senator Glenn Grothman was seen wandering amongst the news vans in a red winter coat.

UPDATE:  4:41 p.m.   After seeing the Chief Justice here at the Capitol Square Starbucks, we were just told to evacuate the building - they're clearing all the buildings around the Square, apparently.  I hope everything is okay...
