Feds now say it tested positive for ricin. Just like yesterday's letter to a republican senator, this is an assassination attempt. Find this sicko and prosecute to the fullest extent of the law.

It's probably anarchists or as donj721 termed them, 'idiots' trying to pile on during a time of heightened anxiety. People who would do this are the reason why some countries in the world still sentence people to be flogged in public!

donj721 - sounds like a great theory, except for the fact the article says the letters were postmarked before the Boston Marathon... So I don't think these particular idiots came after the marathon for their 15 minutes.

rafanonn - too funny. As if the left doesnt have more than its fair share of hate mongers. Partisanship arrived in this country when those in DC decided that a federal government could control most aspects of our lives.
