    Washington, D.C., was sent into a frenzy Wednesday with news that a "suspicious substance" mailed to President Barack Obama was intercepted - one day after Sen. Roger Wicker, R-Miss., was mailed a letter laced with ricin - and a "suspicious package" caused the evacuation of Senate office buildings. ...

    ... "Capitol police say have cleared parts of two Senate office buildings over suspicious letters and package, and they are questioning an individual over suspicious envelopes," reported Colin McDonald of Reuters in a liveblog entry. ...

    Mr. Curtis was not the one.

    I think the media should call it terrorism when the president, mayor of NY, and a mayors group is targeted:

    If the reports are true is this not terrorism?
    All three letters were postmarked on May 20 in Shreveport, La., according to WNBC-TV. They reportedly say in part:
    "You will have to kill me and my family before you get my guns.
    Anyone wants to come to my house will get shot in the face.
    The right to bear arms is my constitutional God given right and I will exercise that right till the day I die.
    What's in this letter is nothing compared to what I've got planned for you."
