Investigators are looking into an apparent hazmat situation at Joint Base Myer-Henderson Hall in Ft. Myer, Virginia, after a number of people began feeling sick after opening a letter, officials said.

Arlington Fire, one of the units responding to the scene, said "11 people started feeling ill after the letter was opened" in an administration building. Three patients were hospitalized and were said to be in stable condition.

He just lost a promotion, CDC says. Big obama fan, likely pissed at CINC’s budgets cuts to his ‘hood. He could have swiped agency envelopes and letterhead, who wouldn’t anxiously open mail from them, even Vanessa?

When I read this and remember the missing CDC guy I start to think of that Bruce Willis movie, “12 Monkeys.”
