Ken Curtis of Tupelo, Mississippi

In addition, both letters are signed: "I am KC and I approve this message."

What a dumb ass.

He's from Mississippi, the Confederacy's butt boy.

Great headline.  So this is like totally unrelated to the Boston thing, or...?  Hell of a coincidence if it is.

Since we're going with stereotypes here......this is what the suspect, Kenneth Curtis, may look like:

Its related to the gun vote in the senate

We don't know the motivations of the Boston guy, but I'd say entirely unrelated. Mail takes time to go through the system, so it would have been mailed before Boston, and they're such different attacks that coordination seems unlikely. Kenneth Nutjob here was probably mailing in response to the gun control vote last week, given the timing and target (Wicker, who voted to break the initial filibuster and has done nothing else interesting in his life).

I could be entirely wrong, but this guy apparently was known around the Hill for sending a shiatload of angry mail, and he's from Mississippi. 2 + 2 makes 4 and all that.

Hard to believe they were able to track down such a cunning supervillain.

Telling the universe of sweaty conspiracy nuts and cranks that ground castor beans will produce a positive result. No way that's going to come back and bite us in the ass.

Sounds like something Gramps should've looked up on Snopes to find it wasn't actually said by a random Founding Father, lol.  What a goof.

Who is KC?
 
2013-04-17 08:00:37 PM
Ok on behalf of tupelo, ms I apologize. Last week we tried to assassinate an elephant and this week were trying to kill politicians. It's not that bad here, really.

whitepages.com suggests this guy's age as "65+".

People can be exposed to ricin by touching a ricin-laced letter or by inhaling particles that enter the air when the envelope is opened. Touching ricin can cause a rash but is not usually fatal.


Don't suck your finger after opening the mail.
 
2013-04-17 08:04:19 PM
So it's safe to start ordering rice & beans again?
 
2013-04-17 08:05:22 PM
This can't be the right guy. He only has 2 names.

An Arab named Kenneth Curtis? Strange days indeed.

Not on Fox yet, so it didn't really happen
 
2013-04-17 08:06:43 PM
We have some actual details, so we can probably believe it.

Isolated incident.

Oh dear god why did I read true comments?!!?

According to Zabasearch, Mr. Kenny K. Curtis of Tupelo, MS is 87 years old.

Aww, couldn't we have gone for the Newsflash superfecta?  Or would that have caused Fark to asplode?

I've seen people get their hands slapped for overuse of the Newsflash, so I went for the safe Followup.

Provided you eat alone, that stuff is gassy.

Also, since he went for the big one and sent Obama a ricin-laced letter, can we assume he'll be facing attempted assassination charges?
 
2013-04-17 08:11:16 PM
BTW, he goes by "Kenny"

Being 87 and still going by "Kenny"??? WTF

/Kenny K. Curtis...
//if he's a white guy, I wonder if he ever considered changing the spelling of his last name to "Kurtis"...

I tend to believe it.  Apparently, the ricin they found was just ground up castor beans.

Nice job, there, Curtis.
 
2013-04-17 08:11:25 PM
So has anyone labeled this a conspiracy/false flag operation yet? To, y'know, restrict our constitution right to bear beans.
 
2013-04-17 08:11:26 PM
I'll just be really surprised if it is real ricin and some random teabag nutter in MS managed to make it himself and get it onto or into or whatever a letter without killing himself with it.

Miss Stein: According to Zabasearch, Mr. Kenny K. Curtis of Tupelo, MS is 87 years old.


How easy is it to contaminate a letter with ricin? My 87 year old grandfather struggles with the televison set.
 
2013-04-17 08:11:48 PM
Heeeeeee's as sweet as Tupelo ricin
Just like poison, baby, from the killer bee.
