I'm a letter carrier here in Tacoma. Recently, President Bush's signing statement authorizing the opening of citizens' mail without a warrant has me extremely concerned.

She said no. She said that the President misspoke, and that the media had blown this into a bigger deal than it really is.
Why don't I believe her? Could it be because the President has already been caught admitting that he's spied on Americans without warrants?
This is one postal worker who won't take it lying down.
