Note to Terrorists: Americans Generally do not Eat their Mail 

A "suspicious substance" was found in the mailroom of majority leader Senator Bill Frist yesterday. Initial tests show the powder tested positive for Ricin, a toxic substance. Ricin's ill effects are felt when it is ingested, injected, or inhaled. However, skin contact poses little risk.

Now, I know they do things differently in those terrorist training camps, but here in the United States we generally do not eat our mail. Not only would that not be very tasty, but that may even be classified as tampering with mail, which is a federal offense. I hate to see terrorists waste their valuable time and money on attacks that, because of U.S. cultural norms, will only be in vain.
