    "Newsweek magazine reported on its Web site Monday that the American Media office received a ``weird love letter to Jennifer Lopez'' a week before the Sept. 11 attacks. Inside was what was described as a ``soapy, powdery substance'' and a Star of David charm. The letter was handled by both Stevens and Blanco, according to unidentified workers cited by Newsweek. "

    Looks like it was intended for this outfit.

    I would doubt that it is related to the NY/DC attacks, as it is too specific, too small.

    It was released at the news conference this AM that the Anthrax in sthis incident is the inhalable type. If it is, it is highly unlikely that this is a natural incident

    Agree with you George, if this does prove deliberate (which it's looking more likely), it still shows how difficult it is to "weaponize" Anthrax and make it effective.

    One clarification though, all "types" of anthrax are the same spores -- but the means of exposure may vary. Most common in the U.S. and world probably is skin-contact with the spores from handling dead animals. Then comes "gastrointenstinal" from eating meat from infected animals. By far the least common way is by Inhaling spores. All Anthrax spores are "inhalable" but actually having enough spores airborne to inhale them and contract "pulmonary Anthrax" is unusual

    However, what it proves is just how difficult it is to disperse biological agents. Anthrax has to be dispersed in 1 to micron sized droplets and it tkaes 10,000 - 15,000 spores to actually infect a person. Anthrax is also not contagious through human contact.

    I think we have to be diligent about this stuff, but I still fear the idiot with the gasoline tanker more than I fear a bio attack.

    This should tell you all you need to know about the so-called "Klingerman virus". It's a hoax.

    The Klingerman Virus was proven to be a hoax.

    Dalmation is quite right, it does occur naturaly and now there is probably a highented level of awareness, more so than ever before. Yet still somewhat scary.
    But my question is this has anybody else heard of this klingerman virus I think that is what it is called, comes in a blue envelope?? I've gotten several e-mails about it butt don't realy take it to heart due to lack of media coverage and nothing coming in on the offical faxes.

    I would take these reports with a healthy dose of "Don't Panic."

    Anthrax is a naturally occuring disease, although through aggressive programs it's very rare in the United States now.

    It's hard to believe someone with the technical skills to collect the spores would target a supermarket tabloid. We're not talking about something of much political value, that would cause a widespread panic, or achieve any military aims here!

    The most unusual thing about the Florida incident is it's the inhaled form of an Anthrax infection, which only happens in the U.S. once every couple of Decades. But it does happen. Before Anthrax was controlled in the U.S., over 100 people died each year in the first decades of the 20th century. Now, each year there's only a handful of infections and the occassionally fatality -- just to prove it's still around naturally.

    I think law enforcement is doing it's proper job -- it's probably a natural outbreak, but let's just be sure...
