Obdicut: I'm disappointed that I haven't seen evidence of more of the really impressive people in the medical field involved at a higher level.
vartian: That's my favorite line in the article.
Outshined_One: This could have been avoided if Reid used Life Alert.
Barakku: That's pretty sad. I wonder if it made it through the mail without postage or the Surgeon General just handed it off to someone to give it to him or something.
""There's no law about how to deliver a letter. I can appreciate all of the security that surrounds the leader, but this all could have been settled in a few minutes."
GAT_00: I can't actually fault them for going to crash conditions after that. As noted in the article, someone fairly recently tried to kill a few Senators with an envelope filled with anthrax. All he had to do was give it to a staffer to prevent that. And there are people who are threatening Democratic leaders fairly regularly these days.
I'm confused about your post. He gave the letter directly to a pol, whose staffer delivered it to Reid. If they want some sort of letter delivery protocol (oh brother), they should set it up.
What's more confusing to me is the recent anthrax scares in Congress. Are you trolling or are there some more recent than the ones back in 2001-02?

Fark It: Complete overreaction....
Corvus: skinink: I'm confused about your post. He gave the letter directly to a pol, whose staffer delivered it to Reid. If they want some sort of letter delivery protocol (oh brother), they should set it up.No he put it in Reid's mail box not to Reid. And actually if that is a federal mail box it IS ILLEGAL to put mail in it.letter delivery protocol (oh brother)Really you think an inter-office mail system is way out there? I guess you have never worked in a large company or have no clue how they work.
shamanwest: GAH! Stupidity upon stupidity, upon stupidity.
Nightjars: shamanwest:GAH! Stupidity upon stupidity, upon stupidity.I think you've had too much coffee. Seems like a rather silly comedy of errors, but it doesn't seem any one person actually did anything all that terribly stupid. It just worked out in the most humerous way possible.
truth_is_stranger_than_fishin: Not sad at all. I would bet even money on harry reid getting the 2nd most amount of death threats right behind our President...
sseye: Harry Reid is a D-umbass. Weak leader.DNRTFA/democrat
Occam's Chainsaw: sseye: Harry Reid is a D-umbass. Weak leader.DNRTFA/democratSecond. I hate Pelosi and Reid, because they're incapable of actually leading the herd of cats that is the modern Democratic Party.
Toonol: truth_is_stranger_than_fishin: ...crazy white teabaggers ready to make their mark.Amusingly, you probably don't even realize you're a racist ass.That aside, Koop came off pretty well in the article. His opinion seemed pretty reasonable.
shamanwest: You know what I'm really afraid of? That the Dem's will end up doing-nothing themselves right out of office in '12.
cptjeff: Because he really didn't state one.
