    ISU Daily Evacuated Due to Powder

    Suspicious powder found at Iowa State Daily, staff evacuated - Iowa State Daily: News

    Staff of the Iowa State Daily were evacuated from the newsroom in 108 Hamilton Hall after discovering a white powder in a package on Wednesday.


    The return address on the package was from Robert Alberg and "contained a few letters and a CD. Letters had traces of white powder," said Daily staff member, Levi Castle in a Facebook post after being evacuated. The CD in the envelope had Alberg's name on it along with his photo.

    Re: ISU Daily Evacuated Due to Powder

    I wonder if there's a "non-suspicious" white powder anymore.


    I'd agree with you, but then we'd both be wrong.

    Yeah, if you're not careful, that powdered sugar is dangerous as hell

    It was probably chalk dust from a classroom.

    Edit: Opened the article and never mind. Sounds like it could be something serious.

    if the powder is indeed ricin, then that's pretty messed up. Question is, why target the Daily?

    It says in the last line, the powder is not harmful.

    He read the piece on how sports are a waste of time and it offended him.

    But seriously, messed up. First reading the quoted part of the OP it sounded like no biggie, since what kind of crazy person would put their real name on such a package? Of course, the article informs us that this guy is, indeed, a crazy person.

    Turned out to be photo paper residue or something according to Twitter, nothing malicious at all.

    Re: ISU Daily Evacuated Due to Powder

    If I ever decide to launch a chemical attack by mail on someone I'm going to add a little food coloring to make the powder red. People always suspect the white powder. The red will slip right through.

    Re: ISU Daily Evacuated Due to Powder

    Sounds like the daily staff wanted glazed donuts and not powdered sugar
