Use the post office and they wont have it in writing? Never occurred to me.

The more the NSA relies on computer gathered and analysed information, the more skills like using a letter opener atrophy.

Besides, the government doesn't need anything "in writing". Jose Padilla was tossed in the jug entirely on the government's unchallenged claim he was a "terrorist". When public outrage forced the government to give him the legal due process the Constitution requires, the inflamitory "dirty bomb plot" charge disappeared due to lack of evidence.
