(Newser) – The Wall Street Journal received more than a dozen envelopes filled with an unidentified white powder today, addressed to various New York-based executives at the newspaper. Police and hazardous-materials crews are investigating, according to a spokesman, and the floor used by paper execs and editorial-page employees has been evacuated. All envelopes bore the same Tennessee postmark.
