    Tell the 500 Planned Parenthood clinics that got fake anthrax a few years back how fucking funny it is.
    Sending threats -- even empty ones -- by mail is a federal offense.
    Conservatism -- Party Of Ideas.

    But it was funny, see. Because Olbermann was terrified, according to anonymous sources. Ha! Ha!

    Fraidy cat. Fraidy cat.

    That was one of the most disgraceful things I've ever seen printed in a newspaper.

    I laughed. I guess I'm a bad person.

    Why would you go to the hospital after you've been told the substance is soap powder?

    Because you think you're smarter than the doctors (and almost everyone else in the world, for that matter).

    And he's probably a hypochondriac.

    And he's a megalomaniac who thinks he's actually important enough to be a terror target. Oh wait, that's just silly, the idea that a braodcast personality would have that sort of ego. Hey, didn't we cover something like that on here not too long ago?

    All of you guys - Fenian, JR, Lyman, Pallister, etc.

    You guys do realize that you are completely disfunctional, messageboard-wise, right?

  10. The National Enquirer got a letter with real anthrax in it back in '02.
    Are they "important enough"?
    And sending fake powder is a) terrorism, because the anti-abortion wingnuts have been doing it for years, and b) a federal crime.

    Are you really dumb enough to assume that anything that can hurt you in an envelope mailed by someone who has a grudge with you will be visible to the naked eye? How can anyone blame the guy for wanting to make sure everything was kosher? Fenian's Enquirer example should make why he felt that way rather clear.

    Fixed. Sorry for appropriating your word, Ace.
