Ever since I heard about powder laced envelopes I have wondered when we will hear about powder laced junk mail envelopes.
There is no way I can stop junk mail from arriving to my mail box. I have tried and have fought with the post office a number of times. I was told
that there was no way they would stop putting junk mail in my box because they make money from it. (And I pay for my post box but I guess not more
than they receive from those companies providing the junk.) I was told the only way I can stop it is to not be provided with a box.
But then this could go further than just our mailboxes too. What about our newspapers? The local papers like to stuff the insides with just as much
flippin' junk advertisements that it wouldn't be hard to spread it around this way as well.
At least with the newspapers I can avoid them. But my mailbox I handle every day. And I might toss the junk mail envelopes away every time but there
are many who are looking for those coupons, savings and deals who could be harmed.
In this day when we are so worried about bioterrorism, are we still not able to fight the junk mail on the basis that we too could receive powdered
laced envelopes in the form of junk mail? Has anyone tried yet?
Junkmail and telemarketers!
