             TRIBUTE TO POSTAL AND LAW ENFORCEMENT WORKERS

  Mr. McCONNELL. Mr. President, the last few days have been trying ones 
for our Nation. Monday's attack in Boston reminded us that terrorism 
can still strike anywhere at any time. As yesterday's news of an 
attempt to send ricin to the Capitol reminds us, it is as important as 
ever to take the steps necessary to protect Americans from those who 
would do us harm.
  This morning I would like to recognize the postal and law enforcement 
officials for their excellent work in detecting and preventing this 
threat before it even reached the Capitol. They proved that the 
proactive measures we put in place do, in fact, work.
  We have faith that the men and women charged to protect the American 
people will find those responsible for the attack in Boston and for the 
letter here at the Capitol. The truth will eventually come out, and 
justice will be delivered.
