    They've been doing this for at least 20 years. I worked at a place that did manually entered the zip codes that couldn't be read by OCR for about 2 days. This was in the mid 90s.

    Well after the 50's and the assassination of Kennedy and the start of groups like the weather underground being popular they continued. Instead of the reds now they are looking for domestic and foreign terrorist.
