Ivins, Sorority Obsessions & The "Editors Of The NYT"
I have a few comments on the sorority obsession.

This is how the New York Times reported it:
http://www.nytimes.com/2008/08/05/washington/05anthrax....

But the investigators found some personal quirks, according to law enforcement officials and people who knew the scientist well. They found that Dr. Ivins, who had a history of alcohol abuse, had for years maintained a post office box under an assumed name that he used to receive pornographic pictures of blindfolded women. Years ago, he had visited Kappa Kappa Gamma sorority houses at universities in Maryland, Virginia and West Virginia, an obsession growing out of a romance with a sorority sister in his own college days at the University of Cincinnati although someone who knew him well said the last such visit was in 1981.

.
This is how the information appeared in the first attachment to the search warrant for a November 1, 2007 search.

The investigation has shown that over the past twenty-four years, Dr. Ivins was known to have utilized at least two Post Office Boxes to communicate with members of the public, to pursue obsessions, and possibly engage in the unauthorized use of another persons name.

Dr. Ivins told (redacted) that he advertised that he possessed a KKG sorority handbook whch contained cherished information solely reserved for KKG members. CW-4 believed that Dr. Ivins was advertising that he had access to privileged information and would be willing to share the secrets with those responding to the advertisements. Dr. Ivins admitted to CW-4 that he had broken into a KKG sorority house to steal a secret KKG handbook. CW-4 believed that Dr. Ivins had committed this alleged crime during his Post Doctorate Fellowship at the UNC, Chapel Hill.

Dr. Ivins provided CW-4 one of his alternate e-mail addresses as goldenphoenix11l@hotmail.com . A search of the internet for postings under goldenphoenix111 identified the following posting dated February 20,2007, on a website at www.abovetopesecret.com :

Wildswan, you are quite right about what you said about KKG. If people look hard enough and dig hard enough, have friends, relatives, perhaps financial resources, etc., then they can pretty much find out about whatever GLO they want. Kappas are noted for being lovely, highly intelligent campus leaders. Unfortunately, they labeled me as an enemy decades ago, and I can only abide by their Fatwah on me. I like individual Kappas enormously, and love being around them. I never choose an enemy, but theyve been after me since the 1960s, and REALLY after me since the late 1970s. At one time in my life, I hew more about KKG than any non-Kappa that had ever lived. Unfortunately Ive forgotten a lot. Ive read the history of KKG that was written several decades ago about its founding. Question for you: Did your chapter use the combined service, .or did you separate your services into the RedRoom and WhiteRoom? did you use special blue or white blindfolds? You can reach me at goldenphoenixlll @hotmail.com as a phoenix rises from its ashes
