A fax announcing a countdown to "Small Business Commitment Week" (left) was transmitted incorrectly to an Ashland Bank of America branch Tuesday, resulting in the image on the right which was interpreted as a bomb threat. (AP Photo)

ASHLAND -- In a scene reminiscent of the Cartoon Network bomb scare that paralyzed the Boston area in January, police shut down a strip mall yesterday in this small western suburb after employees at a Bank of America branch mistook a botched fax for a bomb threat.

Frustrated shop owners said the branch overreacted to the strange fax, which turned out to be an in-house marketing document sent by the bank's corporate office.

Did it occur to anybody in the office to check the machines fax log, and verify that it actually came from the home office, which one presumes ISN'T crawling with jihadists?
