11:20 AM -- The AP confirms that small businesses are, as the kids say, blowin' up:

    A faulty bank fax printed a message that was misinterpreted as a bomb threat Wednesday, leading authorities to evacuate more than a dozen neighboring businesses and a day care center.

    The branch manager of the Bank of America called police about 10 a.m. after receiving a fax containing images of a lit match and a bomb with a fuse, bank spokesman Ernesto Anguilla said.

Yes, this is quite a threat. Most attackers do give a few days notice before commencing a proposed bombing. It's proper terrorist etiquette as per Emily Post.

    About 15 small businesses in a shopping plaza were evacuated for about three hours, including a day care center with about 30 children, Police Chief Scott Rohmer said.

But... If you evacuate the premises, the fax machine terrorists win. — Red "Da Bomb" Panda, Light Reading
