TERRORISM: All LAUSD schools closed by ‘credible threat’ of violence. “Officials have closed all Los Angeles Unified School District campuses Tuesday morning after receiving a ‘credible threat’ of violence involving backpacks and packages left at campuses. Authorities said they plan a search operation of all of the LAUSD’s more than 900 schools. The nation’s second-largest school district has more than 700,000 students.”

Plus: “We get threats all the time. This was a rare threat.”

UPDATE: Threat came from “overseas.”

ANOTHER UPDATE: From the comments: “Well, at least Spike Lee is in the clear on this; his latest bomb was discovered December 4th.” Heh.
