Hit or Miss

Anthrax detected in Kansas City postal facility. A few days ago we laughed when one of my hall desk workers spotted a light, squishy, padded envelope with a return address in CT which had been postmarked in NJ and had no postal cancellation stamp. We carefully placed it aside and called the campus mail room to send someone and inspect it. Then my assistant Patrick came up with the brilliant idea of actually calling the person the package was addressed to and see if she was expecting it. Of course she was.

But now that anthrax has been detected 2 hours from here in KC, I’m not laughing anymore.
