Ricin case: Elvis impersonator cleared

Charges against the Mississippi man accused of sending ricin-tainted letters to President Barack Obama and other officials were dropped Tuesday, U.S. Attorney Felicia Adams said, citing "new information" that has been uncovered.

Authorities now are investigating whether someone may have tried to falsely implicate Paul Kevin Curtis, according to a law enforcement source, speaking to CNN on condition of anonymity.

Curtis said he wants to "get back to being normal" after being falsely accused.

    R. Lee Irming stars in one of my favorite commercials. He plays the role of a psychiatrist. His patient laying on the couch says " I don't like the color yellow, it makes me sad. ". R. Lee Irming picks up a box of tissue, throws it at the man and asks " You want a tissue, you jackwad? Are you in namby pamby land? ". It makes me imagine Bush and Colin Powell throwing a box of tissue at Obama and Hillary Clinton because you never heard Bush whining that Bill Clinton got us in this mess.
