We have to hope God is looking out for these employees because the postal service sure didnt do that.
And postal paranoia is not just in New York. 200 employees in Baltimore are now being tested for exposure to anthrax. Workers are complaining of flu-like symptoms in Topeka, Kansas. (NAT - HAWAII) Even in Hawaii, a suspicious piece of mail forced a post office to temporarily shut down.
