    SUFFOLK - It all started w hen a Wonderland Forest resident took a stroll to his mailbox Tuesday morning.

    The man, a heart patient, unknowingly dropped his nitroglycerin pills from his pants pocket. When a neighbor found them a few minutes later, she put the bottle on top of the community mailbox and a note on the front: Nitro in mailbox.

    The third person to visit the boxes saw the note and called 911, and emergency services swung into action. The State Police bomb squad joined them to storm the mailbox at the entrance to the subdivision on Nansemond Parkway, across from Nansemond River High School.

    Nitroglycerine, in its liquid state, is an explosive. In pill form, it's a common treatment for chest pain. In written form, it persuades emergency workers to rope off an area and tell nearby residents to stay inside.

    "It's a sign of the times," said Capt. Jim Judkins, spokesman for Suffolk Department of Fire & Rescue. "People see something like this, they immediately think terrorism. It was a good exercise."

    It started about 11:45 a.m. and ended more than two hours later.

    The authorities didn't identify the owner of the pills. But he got them back

    The nerve of some people thinking nitroglycerin is an explosive.

    We had an incident at the post office, the rollers that separates the
    mail leaves a white residue as they wear.
    You guessed it, shut down the post office for two days to confirm
    that it was roller residue.

    This proves that we are allowing the terrorists to win. They are not even lifting a finger and our own ignorance is terrorizing us.
