Arsenic And Old Lace
His family includes two spinster aunts, Abby and Martha Brewster, who have taken to murdering lonely old men by poisoning them with a glass of home-made elderberry wine laced with arsenic, strychnine, and "just a pinch" of cyanide; a brother, Teddy, who believes he is Theodore Roosevelt and digs locks for the Panama Canal in the cellar of the Brewster home (which then serve as graves for the aunts' victims; he thinks that they died of yellow fever); and a murderous brother, Jonathan, who has received plastic surgery performed by an alcoholic accomplice, Dr. Einstein (a character based on real-life gangland surgeon Joseph Moran) to conceal his identity, and now looks like horror-film actor Boris Karloff (a self-referential joke, as the part was originally played on Broadway by Karloff).

Anthrax faded from public consciousness, and anthrax vaccines languished until the famous anthrax letters sent to well-known members of the media and two senators a couple of weeks after 9/11. At least twenty-two people became sick and five died.4 Genetic testing (not isolation of the bacteria) indicated anthrax spores, but no one tested the powders for arsenic.
