The employees that discovered this substance perhaps just returned from a trip to Peru,high in the Andes..

was it...

snow? It was in the mountains.

Was Rush Limbaugh sighted nearby?



He can solve any CONSPIRACY.

Fox News

needs to be in on this..It is obviously a pinko commie plot to turn Utah into a haven of socialistic Darwinism...Where is Dick Cheney when you need him;He would of had made G.W. take care of this right away..I would call the President but I think he is still bummed out about the Olympics..Maybe Mitt has a spare moment!!!


What idiotic blogs. The story doesn't say how the substance was found, but it must have been found under a circumstance that warranted concern. Why don't you people (Who know nothing about the situation) just wait until the whole story comes out.


after some of the comments I have read from Cats on occasion,I must say she is calling the kettle black; as some of her observations and conclusions have been a little premature also...

To Cats

Because "we people" have the same right to pontificate as you do...

Dear Cats

This is NOT a blog.
It is a public comment forum.

Sent Cannon an Email

Just sent Cannon an email along with my DNEWS subscription cancellation;;;I shared two of my posts that you refused to post vrs those that you allowed and told him your paper is too liberal for me to read......feel the heat?? Its coming !


sounds like a little early fall snow.

I feel it also

Boy I am so heated up that I am almost trembling in anticipation for the next assault on the DR by posters who have had their feelings hurt..As for this paper having a liberal bias,that is a astonishing conjecture to anyone that reads this paper on a regular basis...I myself consider myself lucky if fifty percent of my comments escape the censors attention and condemnation...By the way I thought some of the comments were very funny and a delight to read,as this article certainly opens itself up to fair spirited parody..


darn Bigfoot, sniffing again while lurking and roaming around, and leaving the left-overs behind........LOL!!


There are many enemies of the church. I think this is just sad.

Wowwww man,

This is really far-out, strange and way heavy, dudes. You dudes and dudettes up there better cool it before all the feds bust ya buns.... LOL LOL LOL LOL!!!!!!


I think this is a dumb article.

I have no clue

how or why powdered fiberglass got into a shipment of anything being delivered anywhere. BUT my husband worked with industrial fiberglass for a number of years, and believe you me, powdered fiberglass can really irritate the skin--to the point that some of the workers broke out in sores that were very hard to heal. So I wouldn't call the stuff harmless, although there may be a logical reason for its presence.
That's what I'd like to know more about.


So how do you tell a suspicious powder form a nonsuspicious powder?


Cats is always right on. I'm with you Cats. This is a relevant story and there are people out there with intent to do harm.


This sounds like a good demonstration about what to do with a suspicious substance. The material found might have been from a broken desiccant packet, depending on where the material was shipped from. Some kind of humidity control material. When the bags break they can have a odd collection of materials.
