Ricin Found In Las Vegas Hotel

OK this is scary:

Police in Las Vegas, Nevada, are investigating the discovery of what they said is the deadly poison ricin in a hotel room.

Authorities were called to an Extended Stay America hotel around 3 p.m. PT Thursday after a man brought a bag with a small container to the manager's office. The man said he found it while retrieving items from a hotel room.

The substance is "100 percent ricin," said Capt. Joe Lombardo of the Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department. "We don't know who [the ricin] belongs to or why it would be here at this time."

It will be interesting to see where this story goes. Was it for some planned terrorist attack? If so then the whole "we have been so safe since 9/11" argument gets debunked a little more.
