    Bizarre.

    Okay, so we have mysterious envelopes with white powder turning up in north TX at schools and a Texas Instruments facility, at a bank in Birmingham AL, at an art gallery in NYC, and at various schools in New England - in Massachusetts, Connecticut, and Rhode Island. Maybe more.

    W-what?

    The FBI analyzed the letters and no hazardous substances were found in any of the envelopes, and no one was injured or became ill after coming into contact with them. They were tested at an FBI laboratory in Quantico, Va.

    An unidentified law enforcement official at the time said the envelopes contained a letter referring to al-Qaida and the FBI, and described the white powder as having the look and consistency of cornstarch.

    The envelopes were addressed to the schools and not to individuals, and the addresses were printed, the FBI said. Agents said the sending of such letters was a "serious criminal offense."

    U.S. authorities have been wary of powdery substances in letters ever since a series of anthrax mailings following the Sept. 11, 2001, attacks.

    The mission of the Neue Galerie New York is to collect, preserve, research, and exhibit fine and decorative art of Germany and Austria from the first half of the twentieth century.
    Let's see....Germany....Austria....first half of 20th century. Hm. Anything going on in those countries at that time? lolol

    Texas grocers really need to think back to who came in and bought a $hitload of cornstarch recently....

    Suspicious letters containing white powder were sent Thursday to at least 20 public schools in Washington, D.C., triggering an investigation by the FBI and the Washington Fire Department.
    and
    The envelope sent to the School Without Walls stated "al quaida, fbi, usa" and was from North Dallas, Texas, WJLA reported.
