ANTHRAX AGAIN!

ANTHRAX AGAIN! The World Bank in Washington DC said today that some of its mail had tested positive for possible anthrax contamination. 1200 employees there will be staying home tomorrow. It's the third report of a positive test in DC this week. Hysteria, residue from before, or is it happening all over again?

second test returned negative. and they are still waiting results from a private tester. i don't know, until there is something conclusive, this just doesn't seem like that big of a deal.

Great, here we go all over again. Hear Cheney talk about "possible attacks" and all freaking hell breaks loose... again.

Only that this time they take care to tell it all in advance, unlike Sept.11.

YES! I DO! THEY HAVE FIELD TESTS FOR ANTHRAX! THIS JUST SAYS IF THE SUBSTANCE IS ANTHRAX LIKE! IT IS A GOOD INDICATION THAT IT IS ANTHRAX! TO MAKE SURE IT IS ANTHRAX THEY HAVE TO DO A SLOWER TEST THAT COULD TAKE AWHILE!

How come BentPenguin's Chill with the caps please, was posted before (3:54) geoff's all caps post? (3:55)? Psychic premonition? Any suggestions about the lottery numbers then BentPenguin?
And on thread:
This is an article questioning the FBI's inability to track down the Anthrax sender(s).

I think BentPenguin didn't like ANTHRAX AGAIN! (But I don't know why it bothered him; it was just two words and the caps had a purpose.)
