The FBI caught the guy they believe sent Keith Olbermann an envelope containing an unknown white powder. Chad Conrad Castagana of Woodland Hills, California was arrested for conveying false information and sending threats by U.S. mail. after FBI agents saw him dropping envelopes in a mailbox near his home. In addition to KO, the FBI claims that others receiving letters from Castagana include Nancy Pelosi, Chuck Schumer, Jon Stewart, and David Letterman.
Castagana appears to have been an active commenter on the web with an interest in science fiction and technology. His comments and letters to the editor appear telling:
In 2002, Chad Castagana wrote a letter to SciFi.com to complain about what he characterized as an attempt by science fiction writers and filmmakers to advance a liberal, politically-correct agenda, adding:
Let us create a future of infinite possibilities devoid of the agenda of the social engineers who work their corruption on us through the one-way world of television (kind of how the liberal-left have always worked).
Castagana also appears to have had issues with what he perceived as an attempt to re-write Soviet history by leftist filmmakers. He wrote of the Harrison Ford film K-19: The Widowmaker:
you get the impression of this film and others in recent yrs (sic) that Hollywood is trying to rehabilitate the image of the Soviet Union - an empire that was trying to destroy us at the time of this film story's events I mean , why make it at all ?
Chad Castagana commented on former Florida senate candidate Katherine Harris in a blog post on "Expose the Left", a site run by former "Political Teen" Ian Schwartz who now blogs for Michelle Malkin at HotAir.com:
Congresswoman Katherine Harris is a remarkable lady ! She has perservered a lot to advance the Conservative Cause . We Red-Bloooded Americans are obligated to support her, siritualy (sic), not just politically !
Chad Castagana weighed in on the Chandra Levy case at the Modesto Bee web site:
This young woman (Levy) would have made a great contribution to our country
Ironically, he had this to say just four months ago about a teacher in Tennessee who violated parole by sending nude photos and video of herself over the internet to a 13 year old boy who she had previously been convicted of having had sex:
Pamela Rogers shoild (sic) get some prison time (she is in jail now) for violating her parole. The issue here is trust, she cannot be trusted to keep away from this teenage boy. Beyond that, she is a nitwit ! She displays an almost juvenile mentality when getting caught; first smugness, then when she realizes she is going to due some hard time, she cries like a little kid that's about to get spanked ! She can get, and should receive psychiatric treatment in prison.
NOTE TO KO: you can use this last one on the show tonight. Your welcome :-)
NOTE TO OLBYLOONS: Before you go hog wild here let me point out that last month another California man, Michael Lee Braun, was indicted for making threats against President Bush and mailing letters containing an unknown, white powder to a Tom Sullivan, a conservative talk radio show host from Sacramento who occasionally fills in for Rush Limbaugh. It is Sullivan's brokerage firm that Limbaugh describes as the official auditor of his claim to be "documented to be almost always right [some percentage] of the time". There is a big difference between OlbyLoons and Clear-Thinkers and dangerous crackpots like these two. Let's all confine ourselves to debate and rhetoric.
