When is a Postal Letterbox not Postal Letterbox?

When it’s a pipe bomb. I can’t help but notice the similarities in packaging of the recent despicable occurances of fear mongering terriorists using the USPS for their nefarious actions. I think there will be a crackdown at our local POs 1) to confirm return addresses, and 2) making sure postage is correct and properly cancelled. I can’t be the only one who noticed there was only $3 worth of postage on a minimum $3.50 package and that the stamps weren’t cancelled.

Maybe insufficient postage is why they were found. They must have come postage due.

Maybe micropostals will be better for a while.

It is a really sad day when our fun hobby is affected by life threatening situations. What is wrong with people?? This world is going mad and all we are trying to do is create and spread the word on a fun filled family hobby... Just sad! :( Rant over!!

I noticed. I have a postal to mail out right now and I feel weird about mailing it because of the bombs. :(

Unless you're mailing it to a politician don't worry about it.
