This is the 2nd one the first was to a senator.
I think this is connected to the Boston bomb.

It's been confirmed that the substance is rising, the same substance found in mail to Sen. Roger Wicker.

Looks like another right wing extremist. Idot.....like the president opens his own mail.

apparently the letters were signed.

"I am KC and I approve this message."

I don't understand how post offices catch these poisoned letters?

Like if an envelope was smeared with some kind of poison I wouldn't know until I was sick.

Are there machines or dogs or something at major mail hubs that check for this stuff?

Well, I'm assuming there are some people who screen the presidents and senators mail.

One of the letters was sent to Roger Wicker, a republican senator from Mississippi, which would seem to counteract the idea that a right wing extremist is at fault here.

Why? The most extreme fascists dislike the Republican Party leaders and vote for them because they dislike the Democratic Party leaders even more.

In any case, I did some reading on the perpetrator last night. He seems to have a mental problems that were likely a result of extreme stress and disgruntlement. He lost his wife, his job, and his livelihood. Why are we claiming that his actions were politically motivated? He was mentally ill.

In addition, a letter was sent to Obama, so there were letters sent to both Democrats and Republicans.

Right wing extremists rarely take the time to be politically inclusive in their assassination plots.

FYI. According to a picture I saw he appeared to be a democrat. I'll try to find it.

This (next link) is also very interesting, it's written by him about 5 years ago, and he details the events that probably lead to him mailing ricin. Also he signs off "This is Kevin Curtis and I approve this report." & the letters were signed "I am KC and I approve this message."

Whats really scary is Ricin is simple enough to manufacture that a child could do it, a one pinpoint of it is enough to kill someone.

Ricin tears through ribosomes like nobodies' business, but that lethal dosage only applies to direct entry into the bloodstream or inhalation. Orally it's much lower; I don't think that the letters posed much of a danger, unless you were unlucky enough to get a paper cut from them, or it contained enough dust to pose a significant threat via inhalation. In those cases you would be screwed. But every source that I've read has specified 'trace amounts', signifying a very small amount.

Fun fact: I grow Ricinus communis in my back yard.
"The Collectivist experiment is thoroughly suited (in appearance at least) to the Capitalist society which it proposes to replace. It works with the existing machinery of Capitalism, talks and thinks in the existing terms of Capitalism, appeals to just those appetites which Capitalism has aroused, and ridicules as fantastic and unheard-of just those things in society the memory of which Capitalism has killed among men wherever the blight of it has spread."
