Seems Like Old Times

A day after the Boston Marathon bombing, a letter containing a suspicious substance addressed to Obama was intercepted. The FBI said the letter was much like one sent to Mississippi Sen. Roger Wicker that tested positive for the poison ricin. In addition, the office of Alabama Sen. Richard Shelby received a suspicious package on April 17, and Sen. Carl Levin (D-Michigan) reported receiving a suspicious letter in his regional office.
