Ricin will kill you.
I'm just saying it is easy to make.You just got to refine castor beans(enter castor beans on google and see).
A Molotov cocktail will kill you too.Yet you've just got to fill a bottle with petrol.
It is serious that it was sent but it was probably some crank out in the sticks.
So the reason why it hasn't been a big story is because the US media have a different view of what is news worthy since 9/11.If it is not Islamic
terrorists then they think it is not a big story.
In 1978, Georgi Markov, a Bulgarian writer and journalist who was living in London, died after he was attacked by a man with an umbrella. The umbrella
had been rigged to inject a poison ricin pellet under Markovs skin.
This is the homeland security site and what it says on Ricin.
