NY Times Takes a Powder

The New York Times reporting that it received a package containing a suspicious white powder, setting off concerns that it may be biohazardous material like the anthrax spores sent to the mailrooms of other publications several years ago.

Let's call it what it is -- a terrorist attack, no matter who is behind it. Even if it was by some who have criticized the Times for publishing the details of intelligence efforts in the war on terror.

I wouldn't blame the Times if it demanded a full investigation by the U.S. government -- wiretaps, tracing of financial transactions, aggressive interrogation and confinement of suspects, the whole thing.

Oh wait...wouldn't want to violate anyone's rights here.

Best just to forget the whole thing, perhaps.

Hee hee. I love irony.
