12:45 p.m. (EST): FBI spokesman Paul Bresson has confirmed that the substance found in the letter to the president was ricin.
The Secret Service says that a letter containing a suspicious substance and addressed to President Obama was received on Tuesday at a White House mail facility. This comes just after a letter sent to Senator Roger Wicker (R.-Miss.) was found to contain the poison ricin.
Willie Nelson may be approaching his 80th birthday, but he's still a spitfire with a whole lot to say -- and he's not afraid to speak his mind, especially when it's a cause he believes in. Nelson recently opened up on his views of the Supreme Court's consideration of gay rights and same-sex marriage, and he was his usual 'Shotgun Willie' self.

Serving one's country as president is certainly a high-pressure gig. But can come with continued "executive privilege" even after leaving office -- like having one of your favorite country groups perform for you on command when you're sick and need your spirits boosted. George H.W. Bush, who served as the 41st president in the 1990s, has been under the weather for about a month, so when his wife Barbara requested that the Oak Ridge Boys sing for him, they jumped at the chance.
