He doesnt spend time sorting mail in post offices does he? If we are talking Anthrax, you've got to touch it, eat it, or inhale it. Being in the same city as some sealed off post office isnt going to harm anyone. Now if they found a nuke in the mail, that might be a different story.
I have various saddles/tack scheduled to be delivered in the next few days, via UPS. There has been some talk, that a package seems to have been tampered with AFTER the person mailed it out.
Do you think it'd be a good idea for me to let a sheriff or such, open my saddle/tack deliveries? Or would that be over-reacting?
