In the time-honored tradition of the Reichstag fire 

The Unwar continues. Yawn.

A white powder found in the mail room of the office of the majority leader, Senator Bill Frist, was confirmed today as the poison ricin, the senator said.

None of the substance has turned up outside his office, Mr. Frist told his colleagues as the Senate session opened.

Dr. Frist, a heart-lung transplant surgeon who wrote a book advising the public on how to prepare for a bioterror attack, said no one had shown any signs of sickness.

"To the best of my knowledge, in a human being, inhaling it has never hurt anybody," said Dr. Frist,

I bet Frist's book is going to start selling like hotcakes!

UPDATE: Via Pandagon, some Iraqis had ricin, just not Saddam. The Kurds, in fact.
