Anthrax in Nevada - update: false positive

The white powder letters sent to thirty governors' offices this week has been reported to be harmless, until today.

A News 4 crew on the scene reports that hazmat officials returned a 'hit' for anthrax on the white powder found in the state capitol mailroom that has forced its employees into quarantine along with our Lemor Shlomof.
Update: I figure since thirty governors' offices have reported white powder mailings, we can assume the US Post Office is enjoying a 40% mail loss rate.

Another update: Turns out it was a false positive.  Whew!
