My husband called from Vegas, where he's at a trade show. It seems that ricin was found in a Vegas apartment. It was actually found two weeks ago, when the guy living there was taken to the ER in critical condition, but today it was confirmed that the substance is ricin. There are people who like to think we live in a safe little bubble, but if you are that delusional, please wake up. There are mercenary folks who will do anything for a buck. And anything could be killing off a bunch of retirees on a jaunt to the Strip for cheap steak and quarter slot machines. The story is linked in the titles.
