Letter: Inconsistent stances on privacy

Published:

 

I find it curious that those in Congress most upset by the National Security Agency monitoring telephone calls are the same ones who would dismantle our U.S. Postal Service, thereby letting contracted private companies read our mail.

A private company's employees moving, sorting, or delivering the U.S. mail are not bound by the Fourth Amendment to the Constitution as we mail handlers of the USPS are.
