11 queer bars in Seattle received anonymous letters promising ricin poisoning of their customers. The Stranger got one addressed to the "obituary" section of the paper. See for yourself:

Can't wait till they i.d. the guy and nail his ass. Any bets for "repressed homo?"

I think it's unlikely it will happen, too. Poisoning 55 people in one night would be a mammoth task! And why the hell would you announce it beforehand if you wanted to be successful in your quest?

It looks more like (and I cringe to say it after the last 8 years) terrorism. Tactic to scare people you don't like, but no balls to actually follow through.

Regardless, stay safe if you drink at any of those establishments!

Well, the fags and dykes are taking over, didn't ya know? :Þ

I'm still going with the repressed homo theory. I've met some nutter evangelicals, but none with such hatred that they would threaten killing someone. (Difference between threatening and promising a painful death/eternal torture in hell is a fine line.)

Very good point! I think I'll stick with your theory, too...

OMG ... that is so incredibly messed up. People need to find new hobbies besides threatening to kill homos. We don't bug anybody... usually lol.

Good grief! This is sick.

Btw, I'm posting again on LJ, off and on. Facebook drove me to it.
