    Here's a scary/hilarious blog for your enjoyment:

      I was so incensed by the writer's portrayal of the anthrax attacks as "the anthrax scare", that I had to write him and tell him:

      Mr Burr,
      Just read your article about the tea protests and I want to take serious exception to your term "anthrax scare". The anthrax "scare" was far more than a scare. It was many acts of domestic terrorism aimed at influential legislators and journalists. The "scare" KILLED several people. The FBI has blamed all of the incidents on one scientist who committed suicide. There are many knowledgeable people who know the science involved in that particular strain of anthrax and how it was chemically packaged for delivery who say that the attacks could not possibly be the work of a lone individual.

      While I know that your article was not about the anthrax attacks, I believe your use of the word "scare" instead of something more appropriate, such as "murders", does a great disservice to your readers. Younger readers, especially, who don’t remember the anthrax attacks, might get the idea that those incidents were not very serious, when in fact, they were extremely serious.

      Let's bust them up in little pieces so they can't hold us hostage like this.
