Stone Office Gets Talcum Powder Fright

News reports say that a package containing talcum powder was delivered to Ald. Stone's office last night. The Chicago Tribune reports that "Police were called by Stone's office about 8 p.m. yesterday." Someone opened the package containing the powdery substance. "Initial tests determined the powdery substance to be non-toxic and may have been talcum powder," the Tribune notes.

Let's hope that the substance is talcum powder, but it doesn't matter. The incident undoubtedly scared those in the office (we have no idea if the alderman was actually there). They are in our thoughts.
