So we beat on against the current, borne back ceaselessly into the past.

It can be made with relative ease if the right ingredients are around. That's partly what makes it so dangerous, the combination of it being readily available and astonishingly poisonous.

Well according to Wikipedia, it's a naturally occurring protein found in the castor oil plant.

Anyone else think it's connected to Boston? Coincidental that two different bad things happen at the same time.

Seems very amateurish, thank goodness. RIP to everyone in Boston, but it could have been a lot worse had the bombs been more complex



Ironically I have never flown a Delta MD-90 :)

Boston seems to be substantially more organized.

The letter guy writes letters all the time (see about half way down McKaskills comments).

"I don't even eat rice." Will that become this week's catch phrase in the news?  

Ricin letter suspect released; FBI searching second Mississippi man's home

Quote:
Charges were dropped Tuesday against the Mississippi man suspected of mailing ricin-laced letters to President Obama and other public officials — as authorities searched the home of another man hoping to find clues in the expanding investigation.

"I respect President Obama and love my country. I would never do anything to pose a threat to him or any other U.S. official," Paul Kevin Curtis said at a news conference Tuesday.


Looks like finally, someone who claims to have been framed, finally was.

Similar was stated w/regards to the anthrax letters sent in Oct. 2001, a month following the Sept. 11 attacks. As it turned out; the sender of those letters, who died a few years ago, was not connected to Al-Queda nor the attacks at all.
