Anthrax Scares: Also Not Terrorism

Never really was, as I recall.

In today's news:
Authorities are investigating a package with white powder and an angry letter that referenced the health care legislation that was sent to Congressman ]Anthony] Weiner's ... office today.

The letter said the Congressman should "drop dead" and complained about the historic health care legislation passed by Congress this week.
At least four Democratic offices in New York, Arizona and Kansas were struck and at least 10 members of Congress have reported some sort of threats, including obscenity-laced phone messages, congressional leaders have said. No arrests have been reported.
The House's No. 3 Republican, Eric Cantor of Virginia, said at a brief news conference Thursday that someone fired a bullet through a window of his campaign office in Richmond this week and he has received threatening e-mails.
I fear someone will be hurt or killed before this is all over.
