Daily News evacuated after bomb threat

Police are checking the phone records of The Daily News (formerly Palo Alto Daily News) after somebody called in a bomb threat to the paper Friday, according to a story in this morning's Daily News. At about 10:15 a.m., an unknown man called paper's office on Constitution Drive in Menlo Park and said, "You're all going to die. There's a bomb in the building." Employees called police and filed out of the building. The bomb squad used sniff dogs to look for explosives, but none were found. Employees returned to work at 12:30 p.m.

Correction--they thought they had a bomb at the Daily News, but then realized it was just their new format.

Nevermind that it was a potentially life-threatening matter. Stay classy, Pen Press Club posters!
