This is really chilling... new cases are popping up every day and you've got to wonder if this is the terrorists' doing. In my mind, there's no doubt it was their doing. Fortunately, our country claims there is enough antibiotics to fight off the sickness (at least the skin form) - but we don't know how big and widespread this will be.

People associated with terrorists are probably releasing this weak strand of anthrax...

I heard something interesting about Anthrax the other day. It is really easy to destroy, before infection can take place. A steam iron will do it. Moist heat is all that is required.
I am a healthcare professional, a nurse, specifically, and haven't taken the time to actually study Anthrax too much, but from what I've read about it, it is not really easy to spread. I'm not too concerned about it, personally.

According to the dictionary a terrorist is a person that causes terror. Well now I think the question should say, "Does anthrax cause terror?" This answere depends on who you ask.

Yeah, antrax is not something I worry too much about. Now if they released smallpox, the plague, or a bioengineered superbug, then I would worry.
