the post office is spying on you
EPIC (of which I am a proud member, or at least was until this story came out and I just publicly proclaimed membership, now I'll probably be a proud member of the Gitmo chapter of EPIC) has learned through documents obtained via FOIA that those innocent looking stamp vending machines at the post office are taking your photo when you use them. If you figure out where the camera is and cover it up, it will not allow you to pruchase stamps.
Where the hell is the vast right-wing conspiracy when you need it? What, they taking a nap or something? The government is getting sleazier than Paris Hilton and they wanna take a nap?
