My son is a senior at the University of Missouri - Rolla. He called a 
few minutes ago to say that campus is shut down, the Civil Engineering 
building is roped off, a student has been arrested, and 20+ students are 
being decontaminated for contact with a suspicious white powder. No one, 
other than the arrested student, has been hurt, but everyone is quite 
scared, including these two parents who are 100 miles away and at work. 
Adam said that the local Fox station had a reporter on the scene, so 
here is the link to the story on Fox:,2933,254921,00.html

He said students were told that classes were off until 10:00 (that was 
at 9:00). His guess, and mine, is that it will be tomorrow before things 
return to what passes for normal on a college campus of 4500 engineering
