70: Other People's Mail
Act Three

Saviors

If you work for the post office and read other people's mail, you can lose your job or go to prison. Unless you work at a Mail Recovery Center. There are three. The postal workers there open mail that's otherwise undeliverable, for a good cause: to see if they can find any clues on where to deliver it. Paul Tough visits the Mail Recovery Center in St Paul. Find out about auctions of unclaimed mail at the Mail Recovery Centers at the U.S. Postal Service website. (15 minutes)
