The Wall Street Journal reported on its Web site Wednesday that it had received about a dozen envelopes containing a suspicious white powder.

The mail was addressed to several New York-based executives at the newspaper published by News Corp.'s Dow Jones & Co., according to the report. At least 10 of the envelopes were being held in the company's mail room, while about 3 others were distributed around the building, the WSJ reports.

New York City police officers and hazmat teams were reportedly on the scene.

4. how much do you want to be that this will be listed by the RW as
"Day 1 of Obama ... the terrorists already attacked! We're not safe under him!"

conveniently ignoring the fact that there was a shi*load of this stuff going on "since 9/11" ... you know, the time that Bush kept us safe from terrorism ...

6. Heehee or somebody is laying a trail of breadcrumbs. Why aren't they naming all of the addressees?
Do any of these people have something in common besides the obvious?

*sigh*. My immediate first thought was: Oh no not again, why now?

7. here are a few names
But Journal employees, speaking on condition of anonymity because they were not authorized to discuss the matter, said that at least some envelopes were sent to Robert Thomson, the managing editor; Paul Gigot, the editorial page editor; and Les Hinton, the chief executive of Dow Jones & Company, the unit of News Corporation that owns the paper.

8. Just tell him to use it between his legs to prevent chafing.
I'm so tired of hearing these silly white powder stories. We all know by now that he average person can't get a hold of anthrax, so these stories are just put out to keep people scared.

15. I think the difference is we will start hearing about who is
doing this shit.

We never, ever found out who did it after 9/11.
