Here we go...
Yesterday ricin was found laced on an envelope addressed to Mississippi Senator Roger Wicker... and now today one for President Obama.

Well 1 consolation, they haven't determined if it's really ricin, and IF the concentration was high enough to kill or just traces. Jury still out.

But you're right - just the possibility reminds us of bad times. frown

Actually, I wonder about this:

9/11 => mysterious anthrax mailings ...

Since then = nothing

Boston bombings = ZOMG Ricin mailings ...

The cynic in me says it's just too pat.

Maybe coincidence, might be "copy cat" ... I don't think any were connected. It's just wackos doing what they do.

The anthrax guy is dead. No worries from him any more. A friend of mine at CDC analyzed all the samples and did the DNA fingerprints to match it to our OWN bio-weapons strain. So it was an inside job.

The anthrax guy is dead? I never heard that or anything about them finding him. I'll have to do a bit of Googling now....

Yes he died several years ago (2006-7 ?? ) but it wasn't highly publicized.
I'll ask my friend again the guys name... but he said the FBI was 99%+ sure it was him. NOT many have the security clearance to get to handle weapons grade anthrax spores.. the list is pretty damm short. Don't know why the fool thought he could get away with it.... in the end, he didn't.
