business news in context, analysis with attitude

• The Newark Star Ledger reports that a Secaucus, NJ, Walmart had to be evacuated yesterday "after a bomb scare similar to nearly a dozen other such threats at Walmarts throughout the country in the past week." Police searched the premises for more than two hours but were unable to find any explosive devices.

Police have said that while they have not yet established a direct link between this threat and others that have taken place, the incident is similar to those that have occurred in Kansas and Missouri.
