Not a fan of any MSM but the guy did mention more than one possibility.
No FOX is pointing fingers at Muslims, is that fair? Is it fair to point fingers at any group when the reality is that regardless of this person/s religion, ideology, race, nationality... they don't represent it? The only thing 'terrorists' represent is lack of regard for other humans.

Looked ricin up and it is really bad stuff!
Because of it's toxicity, wouldn't the person who sent it be subject to exposure?
Shame we live in a world that this type of thing happens.

Interesting. I would think repeating the efforts to scare the public through poisoned letters just as after 9/11 would be a little blatant. Then again they aren't known for being subtle.
Letter to Miss. senator tests for ricin
DONNA CASSATA, AP
1 hour ago
WASHINGTON (AP) — An envelope addressed to Sen. Roger Wicker of Mississippi twice tested positive Tuesday for ricin, a potentially fatal poison, congressional officials said, heightening concerns about terrorism a day after a bombing killed three and left more than 170 injured at the Boston Marathon.
One senator, Claire McCaskill of Missouri, said authorities have a suspect in the fast-moving ricin case, but she did not say if an arrest had been made. She added the letter was from an individual who frequently writes lawmakers.
On Tuesday night, FBI spokesman Paul Bresson said initial field tests on the substance produced mixed results and that it is in the process of undergoing further analysis at an accredited laboratory. Only after that testing can a determination be made about whether the substance is ricin, Bresson said.

Who mails letters today? Would this not have been sent a few days ago minimum depending on the speed of the US postal service of course.
Well you can't exactly email a deadly toxin.
