The plot uncovered earlier this year is said to involve the use of two poisons - ricin and cyanide - slipped into salad bars and buffets.

It's happened before!

Bhagwan Shree Rajneesh Expelled

In September 1985, there was an outbreak of salmonella poisoning at The Dalles, Oregon, possibly the largest known outbreak of salmonella in the United States up to that time. The state health department and the Center for Disease Control traced the cause to salad bars in eight different restaurants in The Dalles. About 750 people got sick and Rajneesh was blamed. Sheela later admitted the poisonings were part of the community’s political agenda, to show that they could do anything they wanted.

Remember the good old days when every Terrorist Threat announced by the Bush Administration was met with skepticism and ridiculed as a Political stunt?

Well, I am so safe. I’d NEVER eat at a salad bar or buffet. I’m not much up for food poisoning, which can be had at these establishments pretty easily.

10 years and trillions of dollars would have been saved if we did this on 9-12

I am guessing that it should be permissible to fire every muslum that you have on your payroll for just cause. I don’t have any, never have and never intend to.

No need to apologize for the rant.
You’ve succinctly expressed my frustrations as well.

Gooberment is good, we need more gooberment in our lives.

Just ask the nice goober from the gooberment agency.

“Just in time for passing the food safety act”.

Beat me to it.... sounds suspicious to me. Then again, everything reported by the media sounds suspicious to me. I guess terrorists were going to target small Mom and Pop vegetable stands.

...”briefed a small group of corporate security officers from the hotel and restaurant industries”...

If it’s credible enough to know who to warn, how about warning the public so that we know who to avoid?

I do not frequent salad bars. ;)

Buffets, however, could be a problem. :)

“Just in time for passing the food safety act.”

It passed a day or two ago, and had nothing to do with restaurants or hotels.

These idiots come out with this crap on a continuing basis; create a crisis that needs to be immediately addressed by the government for the "public safety." every week, there is a new crisis.Pass new laws to protect the country, and trip your freedom away at the same time.

Preach it Brother!
