Wow. This one gets stranger all the time. Wonder if they got the right guy this time?
Check it out:


A Mississippi man was charged Saturday in connection with sending ricin-laced letters sent to President Obama and two other public officials, according to authorities.

Everett Dutschke, of Tupelo, Miss., faces federal charges including the possession, development and stockpiling of a biological toxin and a delivery system to use as a weapon.

The 41-year-old Dutschke is a martial arts instructor. He was arrested Saturday morning by FBI agents at his home, then turned over to U.S. marshals who took him into custody.

Dutschke is scheduled to appear Monday in a federal court in Mississippi and faces a maximum penalty, if convicted, of life in prison.
