Denver on high alert after...

Friday, October 12, 2001 9:58 AM
I've been watching the news here in Denver and there have been firefighters and police (and soon the FBI) at Swedish Medical Hospital and at DIA (Denver International Airport).

Early this morning, a postal worker was stamping letters and when he stamped a letter, a white powery substance came out and was exposed 4 workers. They were taken to a local hospital and the hospital has been locked down. The substance is being testing for what it is as I type.

At DIA, a suspicious package was found at the FedX(sp?) area of the airport. UPS, The United States Postal Office, and FedX have their own section of DIA for transporting packages and letters. A worker found a suspicious package with Arab writing on it. The area has been blocked off.

Did they lock down the post office as well?

In a related story, you have heard already, but a NBC employee in New York has just been confirmed has having a skin-based form of Anthrax.  http://www.cnn.com/2001/HEALTH/conditions/10/12/nyc.anthrax/index.html

I find it mind-boggling that this sudden outbreak of Anthrax, four cases within a week, isn't being linked to the attacks. I suppose it's just some funny coincidence!

The FBI said look for more attacks. The thing is, they didn't say where to look. Obviously, we the public are looking at the flying bombs that levelled our Towers, but what we not looking at is what we can't see -- biological warfare. And friends, that straight-up scares me.

I can't tell you how strongly I just wish September 11 never happened.

Yes, lots of people are looking at the skies now, which is precisely why the next attempt at an attack won't be from the air.

Another hijacking is virtually impossible now.  The terrorists know this.

Yes, the post office (which is in Parker) is closed.
