All’s back to normal at the Lincoln Memorial

It had been closed earlier due to reports of suspicious bottles being found with anthrax notes attached in a restroom, but it’s open again:

Authorities briefly closed the Lincoln Memorial on Monday after finding suspicious bottles in a restroom and a note reading “Do you know what anthrax is?” and “Do you know what a bomb is?”

Authorities found a bottle appearing to contain a liquid in a basement ladies’ rest room, along with the note.

None of the objects was found to be a threat, said Wayne Benson, a batallion chief with the District of Columbia fire department.

The memorial was reopened less than three hours later, shortly after 3 p.m.
