The US Mail - Big Brother
Some of my colonial readers may have noticed the USPS is introducing self-service kiosks to make life easier - but not just easier..
"US Postal Service self-service postage machines take portrait-style photographs of customers" - No warning or notice of this is displayed. It is part of the "Intelligent Mail" program. "A report issued on July 31, 2003 by a Presidential Commission on the Postal service called for the USPS to "explore the use of sender identification for every piece of mail, commercial and retail" as part of a broader plan to introduce Intelligent Mail."
So they want to know your Christmas Card list - for your own good of course!
