Now I get the Gump statement.

I believe Gump was from Mississippi, too.

I always liked ol’ Festus.....

Just think, Seinfield named a holiday after him too.

After today, I don’t know if I believe this guy even had ricin. It might be a false flag. I believe NOTHING from the MSM anymore.

Maybe he just put “rice in” an envelope, if anything.

What a crap week, and it’s only hump day....

a homegrown terrorist sends Ricin at the same time as the Boston terrorist incident? I am not buying that this is just a coincidence. these incidents are related. Al Qaeda used the MS incident to point to homegrown terrorism. Al Qaeda themselves did the Ricin or framed some poor unsuspecting slob.

The other option is homegrown terrorist for both incidents. Not buying that just yet ... but we’ll see.

postmarked April 8, 2013 out of Memphis, Tenn

Liberal media today in Miami Florida noted that "Wicker was one of the Republicans that voted with Democrats on gun control!" (the cloture vote)...

The liberal Obama buttlicking media can't check a calendar, can they? That cloture vote was taken on April 11...three days AFTER the letter was mailed.

Yeh, right. The FBI can pinpoint a suspect out of 300 million people, but it can’t ID a suspect from a few hundred people at the finish line at the Boston Marathon.

There is a Kevin Curtis from Mississippi who on April 11th wrote “this is KC and I approved this message” on his facebook.

But somebody could conceivably mess with someone by quoting another person, then again, the letters were senton the 8th...but not found until the 14th or 15th. The guy is an unhappy Democrat.

Kenneth Curtis of Tupelo, Miss

Some big dude named Tyrone will be calling you his “Tupelo Honey” at the Federal Prison for the next 45 years.

Kenneth Curtis of Tupelo, Miss likely mailed the letters at a post office had a security camera or put his return address in the envelope.

From there, it would have been easy to track the terrorist down.

Obviously we need to outlaw Mail.

I think that we will all rest easier when high capacity, fifty stamp rolls are outlawed. Nobody needs more than a book of ten stamps.

One of the replies on an article about this on Hot Air had this link to a ripoff report this guy submitted in 2007:

http://www.ripoffreport.com/political-cover-ups/north-mississippi-me/north-mississippi-medical-cent-z8efd.htm

Guess discovering the fridge full of body parts at the hospital sent him off the deep end.

There is a "like" on facebook of KevinCurtisLive for Nancy Scheper Hughes.

Scheper-Hughes served as a Peace Corps Volunteer in Brazil in the 1960s. She has worked as an activist and with social movements in Brazil (in defense of rural workers, against death squads, and for the rights of street children) in the United States (as a civil rights worker and as a Catholic Worker[citation needed] for the homeless mentally ill, against nuclear weapons research at the Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory[citation needed]) and internationally in defense of the rights of those who sell their kidneys. [edit] Organ tradeIn 1999, Scheper-Hughes joined with three other professors to launch Organs Watch, an organization dedicated to research on the global traffic in human organs, tracking the movements of people and organs around the globe, as well as the global inequities that facilitate this trade.

seems to tie in to the organ thing

To say nothing of the way the post office has been consolidating, and if the postmark was Memphis, and one letter was sent to a Mississippi official....bingo!! Tupelo is close enough that all their mail would now be postmarked at Memphis.

This Ken Curtis was arrested in Corinth today at his home here. I guess Tupelo being the largest town within 50 miles is for news brevity.

According to other accounts, his full name is:

Paul Kevin Curtis of Tupelo, Miss.

That might explain why the searches mentioned above didn’t turn up anything.

Other stories report that he protested illegal traffic in body parts, or something of the kind.
