USPS suspicious mail notice

24 January 2011

Store date: soon after 9/11

The United States Postal Service sent this notice, and several others like it, to businesses and homes throughout the country in the years after the terrorist attacks of 11 September 2001. We, of course, received several parcels and bulky pieces of mail daily, so were momentarily wary. But our vigilance waned quickly.

I remember telling people then and now that working at Laser’s Edge was like a daily Christmas morning; I’d rip into promo packs as if there might be a new puppy inside. So, the “Don’t shake it, bump it, or sniff it” warning seemed funny to me. After all, do we do that on Christmas morning? That warning, in fact, was going to be the working title of our next CD Sampler (which explains the circling around it) but, by the time I came up with that idea, the store was closing and the Sampler series had come to an end.

  1. They did not know about Powdersafe [then, but] 10 years later they still do not have any Powdersafe units when the rest of the world has them. They have been told and information provided. Why do test suspicious mail in open air? What is wrong with the post office? What is wrong with the postal inspectors as they also know of the product and have not acquired it yet?
