This Golden Oldie is from 2001.

Ten years ago America was caught in a massive anthrax scare. Everyone seemed to be on the lookout for anthrax-laden mail. According to the BBC of Wednesday, November 7 , 2001:

"In media offices, abortion clinics, and government offices around the United States, mail handlers are donning white gloves for fear of the dreaded white powder - anthrax.

But still the FBI has no conclusive evidence as to whether the recent attacks have been state-sponsored, or the work of America's own radicals.

It is a complex investigation made worse by the fact that more than 2,500 anthrax scares in the United States have turned out to be false alarms."-more
