Empty Briefcase, Not Osama, Responsible for Muni Delays
|Osama's dead and to prove it ... the suitcase is empty!|
We would have gotten this news to you sooner, but your author was also stuck at the Embarcadero station for a lengthy period of time, waiting for the trains to move.
But we digress. Here is what happened.
A suspicious object resembling a suitcase was found outside an Inner Sunset convenient store at about 7:20 a.m.at Eighth Avenue and Irving Street. The SFPD bomb squad was on the scene by 8:30 a.m., cordoned off the area and shut down the N Judah line.
By 9:20 a.m., police had determined that the suitcase was empty and there was nothing to be afraid of -- not even Osama bin Laden.
