Just seen on the news a letter testing positive for ricin sent to the White House. First the senator now this.
Posting on tiny phone screen so I'll edit with links when I can.
A spokesman for the Secret Service, which protects the US president and his family, said it was liaising with the US Capitol Police and Federal
Bureau of Investigation (FBI) to trace the origins of the letter.
"This facility routinely identifies letters or parcels that require secondary screening or scientific testing before delivery," Edwin Donovan said.
The letter intercepted on Tuesday was intended for Roger Wicker, a Republican senator representing Mississippi.

Reminds me of the post September 11th scares. Anthrax wasn't it?
Something big sure does feel close. A good time to bury bad news.
