I read in Fla Today that some people received brown manilla type envelopes in the mail that contained some white powder. Those people are now sick! As usual I left the paper at work. Anyone else see this? I would love for GovtThug to jump in right now and tell me to go to Snopes, but I really did see it in print.

yea it's been all over the news..you get to see the guys in the space suits. but they say they found no toxins in them(yea right) and the families are both in the hospital. they only live 6 blocks away. one of them just threw the envelope away but was complaining that his arm burned after he did. will be interesting to see what it was.

Sorry, tc, didn't see it on snopes. I just saw on Fox News Channel that they think the guys at The Sun in FL got infected from a letter in the mailroom.

What ever you do, if you get one of these envelopes do not open them!! I read on [url]www.nobullshit.com[/url] that the powder is actually small robitic particles. These robot paticles contain highly infectious computer viruses that can reproduce and "jump" from person to person!! Be afraid!!! Be very, very, very afraid!!!
