HAS ANYONE HEARD ABOUT THIS Geocache? A friend forwarded this to me.

The OC Register had the following news story:
Bomb scare at Disneyland a false alarm

The Tomorrowland area of Disneyland opened 30 minutes late this morning after 
a park landscaper found a suspicious package at the bathrooms near the 
Autopia ride.

The Orange County sheriff's bomb squad declared the incident a false alarm 
after deploying a robot equipped with an X-ray that determined the object was 
not an explosive.

"We don't know whether it was an elaborate hoax or just something left 
behind," said John Nicoletti, Anaheim city spokesman, who was at the scene.

The incident did not delay Disneyland's scheduled 9 a.m. opening, but patrons 
were unable to visit such Tomorrowland attractions as Club Buzz, Innoventions 
and Starcade until 9:30 a.m.

Officials said that the landscaper found the object around 7 a.m. at the 
bottom of a staircase. He notified security personnel, who in turn called 
Police summoned the bomb squad.

What does this have to do with us, you may ask?  The story doesn't reveal 
this as they may not have known at the time but the package the landscaper 
was a geocache inside of a hollowed out toy cell phone that had been in that 
location since Oct. of 2002.

I thought it might be of interest and serve as a heads up for the hightened 
sense of fear that people have these days.

We need to keep this in mind as we choose locations for our boxes.
