A second postal worker in Washington, D.C., has contracted the inhaled form of anthrax disease. In addition, two postal workers from the same facility have died. NPR's Larry Abramson reports that neither case has been confirmed as anthrax, but health officials say the clinical signs are suspiciously like anthrax.
