"Paul Kevin Curtis... freed after initially being accused of sending ricin-laced letters... has long been feuding with a fellow entertainer..."

"... who is now a focus of the inquiry."
The genesis of the feud between Curtis, 45, and Dutschke, 41, was unclear. Curtis told the Associated Press that they had worked together at Curtis' brother's insurance office years ago. Curtis said Dutschke told him he owned a newspaper and showed interest in publishing his book about what Curtis believes is an underground market to sell body parts....

That other guy is the one. He's a real Dutschke bag.

I wonder if, at a cocktail party of accused mass murder suspects, they would refer to each other by their first, middle and last names?

Williams-Sonoma should pull the $25 bottles of herb-infused castor bean oil.

Will Ferrell, pick up the white courtesy phone.

The last few days I have been watching the Amazon Studios comedy pilots. I should say, "the God-awful Amazon Studios comedy pilots." These two guys should be the main characters in a sitcom.

This is what Burt Wonderstone should have been about.

Hey, at least they weren't as wrong as Reddit!

Wait... there's something wrong with that, and I can't quite figure it out.

One gets the impression the Feds haven't got a freaking clue, but feel the need to look as if they're actually doing something.

Highly reminiscent of the post-9/11 anthrax incident.

Do we think the guy would have been arrested so fast if not for Boston? Did that maybe make them jump, just in case, especially after missing the Boston suspects (they called their house, if current reports are right, and asked them to come in, and maybe they thought not to do that with this guy after it failed in Boston?)

One can't help suspecting that the govt tried to distract us with the ricin letters -- remember the anthrax letters actually worked to take attention off 9/11! -- and the capture of Curtis was supposed to make us think Wow! These guys are sharp! so we wouldn't notice the bumbling on the Boston bombings.

We'll see how long it takes the FBI to find Misha. It would appear that Tamerlan was interviewed by the FBI in the summer of 2011, killed the 3 guys he suspected of ratting him out on September 11, 2011, fled the country for 6 months until he was sure the coast was clear, and then returned to the U.S. and spent as much as a year planning the Marathon Bombing.

The impersonator was impersonated!

I reject that on the assumption that one shouldn't assume a conspiracy theory when ordinary incompetence can explain the result.

What if ... it's not about Obama?

Don't expect to hear much about this story anymore.
