It just seems weird that a guy who would send Ricin to people would be posting about heroes in Boston.

I personally think Winston Groom based Forrest Gump at least partially on Richmond Flowers.

They were both born in Alabama, Richmond in Dothan. They both wore braces on their legs. They both played college football in the SEC. Flowers played for Tennessee and scored the winning touchdown against Alabama.

Of course some huge differences too. Flowers went on to play for the Dallas Cowboys and Forrest went into the army. Richmond’s Father was Attorney General of Alabama. Forrest’s Mother was middle class.

They were both White and were world class runners (hurdler for Flowers) in events which are dominated by Blacks. Flowers was once probably the best hurdler in the country.

He’s a white angry leftist, who admits he’s been in trouble with the law before, with a bent toward conspiracy theories and sees himself as something of a hero.

He used the phrase “This is KC and I approved this message” on his facebook on April 11th, (scroll down) after the letters were mailed but before their content was known.

Does the phrase “I’m KC and I approved this message” have some significance from somewhere? Could it be an inside joke or something? Interestingly, Senator Wicker is mentioned as an aside on his page.

Knick-names himself “Elvis Guy” and here’s a weird coincidence: I went to high school with a guy who seemed bright and mostly normal who became obsessed with Elvis to the point of really serious craziness. Today he’s doing time in Federal prison. What for? Sending envelopes of white powder to politicians.

HE’S A DEMOCRAT - active and proud of it. I suspect NBC is going to lose interest in this story now that they know ( and ARE NOT telling)

Nah... Plenty of material for them to run with. White male, Christian, Southerner. And even if they are forced to concede that he is a Democrat, they’ll point out that Blue Dog Dems are really just Republicans anyway... Thus, a White male, Christian, Conservative, Southerner.

Well ricin is derived from castor beans. Let's say the guy took some castor oil and got some on his fingers. Or let's say he handled some other product made from castor beans. That would leave traces of castor DNA on what ever he touched. Don't know if that would react to what ever test is used to find it on mail, but could be possible.

If that turns out to be the case he hasn't committed a crime. He has apparently sent letters regularly to various people in Washington and that is not out of the ordinary.

How much do you think the settlement will be for the false arrest? Can't help but think of Richard Jewel guy and the Atlanta bombing.

Ha! they will ignore that he’s a democrat and just discuss him being a radical Christian. And see, Christians like to kill people just as much as Muslim’s do so all religions are equally bad for society.

. ......Since Curtis arrived in the town, he had been living in “government housing.”

Oh that’s real smart....’biting off the hand that feeds you’...the guys not too smart.

Now he’ll truly have government housing in the row.

Looking at the photo of him - his skin doesn’t look very white to me. It looks darker toned and I don’t mean black. Frankly, he could be significantly native American. If so, his appearance would make Pochahantas Liz Warren blush with shame at her ethnicity claim - that is if she had any shame.

An earlier version of this story misidentified the suspect based on initial information from police as Kenneth Curtis. The suspect’s name, who was arrested in association with mailing letters with Ricin to President Barack Obama and a U.S. Senator, is Paul Kevin Curtis of Tupelo, Miss.

Facebook page photo of Paul Kevin Curtis, 45. He was arrested at his home in Corinth, Tenn. on April 17, 2013
