We have no word on whether or not these two incidents are linked or just pure coincidence, but both the University of Texas at Austin and North Dakota State University were evacuated this morning after receiving a bomb threat.
UT got a call around 8:35 a.m. from a man with a Middle Eastern accent claiming to be a rep from al-Qaeda and threatened that bombs on campus would explode in 90 minutes!

Back in August, Ryan O'Neal landed in a bit of trouble with the University of Texas. The institute claimed that Ryan was in possesion of an Andy Warhol original painting that was promised to the school by Farrah Fawcett. While they have yet to claim the porttrait of Farrah done by Andy that they are after, they have collected other artifacts from Farrah's collection, including a Warhol "Napkin" that Ryan is insistent on getting back.
Therefore, he has filed a counter-suit against the school to get what he wants from them. The paperwork reads:
