FOX just reported that D.C. will have a news conference to update on late news soon..
If the postal workers didn't open the mail, how did they inhale the Anthrax? Did the powder leak out?
These articles are posting so fast I don't even have to click "copy" anymore...the script just hangs in there for the next "paste".
In the CALPOWERCRISIS topic area we have nearly 2000 documents retrievable.
This area will be much larger very soon the way it is growing!
The 2 deaths are confirmed to be inhalation anthrax. Brentwood facility testing + for anthrax..
The other 2 in the Inova Fairfax Hospital remain stable condition.
TOTAL STATISTICS:2 deaths, 4 cases 'suspicious'..an additional 12 cases that are in category of LOW suspicion...
I was wondering too. Also, last week, FOX reported that an 8 year-old boy in Florida was suspected of having skin anthrax. Anybody hear this besides me?
I scour the news and there has been no further mention of this guy.
