Anthrax and Bruce Ivins’ suicide
This video really got me thinking.
What’s with this Robin Meade? Is she a regular on TV? Not living in the States spares me from having to know some of these nearly insupportable characters. It seems to me she’s got a touch of the Bratz Doll trying to talk like a Valley Girl. “It was like he was two different people.”
But the real problem I have with this report is it’s Bruce Ivins’ therapist who’s quoted. Apparently the therapist is not bound by confidentiality. Is that because the patient recently died, supposedly by suicide?
The LA Times has the story as written by David Willman.
Ivins died Tuesday at Frederick Memorial Hospital after ingesting a massive dose of prescription Tylenol mixed with codeine, said a friend and colleague, who declined to be identified out of concern that he would be harassed by the FBI.
There’s clearly going to be a sustained effort to close this case, finger Ivins as the killer, and turn away from any of the lingering questions. That would be a huge mistake.
