And Kevin, sure, you don't have to get up out of your chair and never come back, but if there was a bomb threat, I bet you would move. You wouldn't "tough it out" because you have replacable items on your desk. You would leave, and if the bomb blew, as Katrina hit, you would most likely not come back until the building was restored and you could replace your items, which are hopefully insured.
