The Virginia man-- who's said to be in serious but stable condition, worked for the main post office in Washington D-C. That's where authorities say he handled the anthrax contaminated letter sent to Senate Majority Leader Tom Daschle. Right now-- health authorities say people who work at the D-C facility should start receiving antibiotics as a precaution.

((A postal employee who works at this Washington DC mail facility is now the latest victim of anthrax. And even more troubling -- is the kind of anthrax he has. Inhaled anthrax -- one of the deadliest forms of the disease.

THE PATIENT IS LISTED IN SERIOUS BUT STABLE CONDITION, AND IS BEING TREATED AGGRESSIVELY WITH ANTI-BIOTICS

Co-workers began lining up to find out if they too had been exposed to the bacteria. Government officials ordered the testing of more than 21-hundred employees at the mail processing center and another location.
This facility is the same place that sorts letters and packages for the Capitol -- including the anthraxed-laced letter sent to Senate Majority leader Tom Daschle.
The man-whose name has not been released-is the ninth person diagnosed with Anthrax in this country since a Florida man died of inhaled anthrax earlier this month. And Sunday's announcement came one day after health inspectors on Capitol Hill found traces of the bacteria in an office building that handles mail for the House.
As the war against Anthrax is being fought on American soil-the bombing battle continues in Afghanistan. US warplanes attacked Taliban positions near a front line north of the capital of Kabul, while Taliban leaders doled out heavy weapons around the country. Joint Chiefs of Staff Chairman Richard Myers says the Taliban forces have been weakened considerably.

"Ciro's Pizza has been in this community since before I even moved here. Several people have eaten there and most on more than just a one time basis.

((The faces are as familiar as those in our own photo albums and hold the same power to conjure up memories.

All his 322 covers for the Saturday Evening Post are on display along with some original pieces. Notice the detail and smooth brushstrokes.

[OUT Q=made them look new.]

Though the images are mostly taken from small towns in the Mid-Atlantic and and New England, Rockwell's themes often spoke to a greater population. Subjects like the Depression, both World Wars and civil rights gave the illustrator universal appeal. And his ability to relate not only humor but a sense of hope makes his artwork timeless.
