    The report I just saw said one of the packages turned out to be a toner cartridge. Besides stating the obvious, there's not much I can really say to comment on this.

    A very interesting turn of events today with this story as I saw on several sites last night suggestions that between then (last night) and November 2nd of the possibility of some sort of 'terrorist alert'. Pretty good prediction who ever they were.

    Yemeni arrested, al-Qaida bomber eyed in mail plot

    SAN'A, Yemen -- Yemeni police arrested a woman on suspicion of mailing a pair of bombs powerful enough to take down airplanes, officials said Saturday as details emerged about a terrorist plot aimed at the U.S. that exploited security gaps in the worldwide shipping system.
    Investigators were hunting Yemen for more suspects tied to al-Qaida and several U.S. officials identified the terrorist group's top explosives expert in Yemen as the most likely bombmaker.
    The explosives, addressed to Chicago-area synagogues, were pulled off airplanes in England and the United Arab Emirates early Friday morning, touching off a tense search for other devices.
