Continuing in that vein:
The US SECRET SERVICE would send everybody in the building a memo,
telling them to change their passwords. They would hand-deliver the
memo, because they are not allowed to send or receive email. They
would then depart, driving at 75 MPH enroute to a secure undisclosed
location (i.e. a brothel).
The county DEPARTMENT OF ELECTIONS wouldn't lock the doors, but they
would put tamper-evident seals across all the door/jamb joints.\1\
