The powder that was sent to The Wall Street Journal yesterday has been tested and found to be "flour or a food-based substance." As it turns out, Harvard Law School professor Alan Dershowitz also received a powder-filled mailing yesterday up in Boston. Police believe they are linked, since both bore postage from Knoxville, Tennessee, although Alan at least got this nice card. [NYT, WSJ]
