White Powder Delivered to Wall Street Journal

Hand-addressed envelopes return-addressed from different locations in Tennessee arrived at the Wall Street Journal's New York offices and were revealed today to contain an unidentified white powder. They were addressed to "several executives." The intention is presumed to be either to scare or to seriously hurt said executives. Two floors of the building were evacuated, but employees were recently cleared to return. Investigation is pending.

Update: The powder is "thought to be flour." Alan Dershowitz also got sent some powder, which is also thought to be non-hazardous, at Harvard Law.
