    They (government, media etc.) kept saying the first case was a ?routine accidental occurance?

    How will they explain this one? Let me guess, they were secret closet lovers???

    Sorry, I have a suspicious mind. To me sounds more like someone was testing a method of spreading this deadly disease.

    I wonder if they can identify which strain of anthrax this was. You know, like thry can type e. coli etc to determine where it came from. I heard they found it on a keyboard and in the ? mail room?

    I work in Boca Raton. FL- a few blocks from the building where these two men acquired anthrax. I'm personally very frightened.

    Unfortunately, I think this is just the tip of the iceberg! They probably have all kinds of wicked devices to unleash on us. We must be careful, and vigilant, but not run scared!
