GOVEROTRAGEOUS: Suspicious packages spotlight vast postal surveillance system | Notes From The Bunker

The U.S. Postal Service regularly photographs the front and back of every piece of U.S. mail, or about 150 billion parcels, envelopes, and postcards every year.

Maybe it’s time for the Post Office to go out of business.
