Most of these are already killed by the post office. Unless the Pathogen is some kind of genetically modified archaeic bacteria (i highly highly doubt) , it would have been destroyed.

I was under the impression that everything got zapped and you dont send unexposed film anymore.edit on 23-2-2012 by Shadowalker because: (no reason given)
Is my mail is being irradiated?
Currently only mail to the White House, Congressional offices, and federal government offices in the 202-205 Zip Code exchanges is being irradiated. Irradiation is taking place at facilities in Ohio and New Jersey.
Are there changes to the mail after it has been irradiated?
Yes. Irradiating mail at such high intensity creates new compounds, which can result in a different look, feel, and even smell. The potential health effects of these changes is unknown. Because of the intensity of the beam, mail often looks yellowed, and can become brittle. Book bindings may become brittle, and plastic may be discolored. Seeds, plants or other biological material will be sterile, and photographic film will be useless. Items such as gem stones may be altered, and computer disks, CDs, and some electronic equipment (like personal digital assistants) may be damaged.
Have people complained of health problems from irradiated mail?
Some postal and federal workers have complained of skin irritation and respiratory problems associated with exposure to irradiated mail. However, there are no established health effects from the mail, and investigations into a these complaints are ongoing.
they have tons of followers/listeners, and they made a huge joke out of the elites super pac strategies.. Id say, this is real. Though.. A lot of strings being pulled these days, who really knows but the puppet master? Something brewing, and its going to boil over.. Sometimes I think colbert and stewart are just pulling the wool over our eyes.. By telling us things we despise and then getting us to laugh about it.. Like, the jokes on us.. But.. I dont know.. I cant have hope, as pandoras box has been open for centuries.. So ill sit, relax, and react.

Maybe someone sent them a box of Twinkies. Or maybe a certificate for free lunch at some restaurant that has food chemistry that is bad for them, Maybe the letter will cause the Senators to get stressed and the body will create different chemistry that slowly poisons them. Pathogens don't always have to be microbial.
