I'm actually surprised it is done manually. With the OCR systems, I'd have thought they would scan it all to track load.

The only solution is a well constrained small government.

a forerunner of a vastly more expansive effort, the Mail Isolation Control and Tracking program, in which Postal Service computers photograph the exterior of every piece of paper mail that is processed in the United States — about 160 billion pieces last year. It is not known how long the government saves the images.

Yes, but if the supervisor is handling it, then that is being done manually. Which seems pointless, unless it is to verify the photos are legible.

you are confusing things. That guy in the story you are refer to was spied on the old school way.

But your postal service does create digital images of EVERY letter sent and stores them for your precious government to analize.

You should feel really safe right now.
