Suspicious Package at Thomas Circle

Thanks to @jjohnson for the photo

Just got some buzz that Thomas Circle has been closed and evacuated for a “suspicious package.” And here’s another photo of the yellow tape around the area right now from The American Spectator’s Philip Klein.

Guess we’re all a bit on edge after yesterday’s failed Times Square bombing attempt.

Update: The security scare was triggered by a homeless man pushing a garbage can up beside a building. The area is now all clear and Thomas Circle has been reopened. The world is safe again.

Roving Asian mendicant, can occasionally be seen wandering the streets of downtown Washington, muttering unintelligible gibberish to passers-by while pushing a “bag lady” shopping cart full of old blankets, American flags, soda cans, and healthy secondhand snacks from organic food shop dumpsters. Used to live in a cardboard box at 16th and K but the rent was too expensive.
