including President Barack Obama, that contained the deadly poison ricin. NBC News and The Clarion Ledger are both reporting that Kenneth Curtis of Tupelo, Miss., has been arrested in connection with letters addressed to Sen. Roger Wicker (R-Miss.) and Obama.
The Ledger reported that Curtis signed both letters: “I am KC and I approve this message.”
