There are many methods for shipping packages. UPS and USPS tracking is available, if you want to know where your package is or was. It is important to follow a shipment, and UPS tracking is automatic, whereas USPS is not. Fed Ex is automatic, too; but those items seem to be better suited to documents and the like. It is very easy to track those shipments online, in your web browser. I don’t know if Facebook has a UPS tracker, but please check for me. Now, with the passing of NDAA, will tracking information be automatically sent out to “others”? One could argue that the NDAA allows for this because it is in the “national interest”. Christopher Hitchens (R.I.P.) could have argued all day with this. FedEx tracking is electronic, so is UPS. You’ve seen those handheld scanner pads, haven’t you? As a hypothetical, if Christopher Hitchens entered the waiting room of the afterlife (he did say something about hoping is allowed), do we all get tracking numbers, just in case? I guess that would be limbo, otherwise.
