WyBlog, the best thing about New Jersey since the invention of the 24 hour diner.
The nine most terrifying words in the English language are "I'm from the government and I'm here to help." - Ronald Reagan

Technorati is indexing me again! They had to make a code change to fix the problem with my blog getting stuck in their queue. Kudos to Eric M. and the guys at GetSatisfaction.com where they have "community powered support for Technorati".
Well, they're "sorta, kinda" indexing me anyway. It's on a 24 hour tape delay or something. So I never get picked up by Memeorandum because they pull from Technorati and Technorati has stuff I posted yesterday listed as my latest blog entry. And that's old news to Memeorandum.

Hot on the heels of raising their prices (again), the Postal Service announced plans to eliminate Saturday mail delivery.
The U.S. Postal Service will stop delivering mail on Saturdays but continue to deliver packages six days a week under a plan aimed at saving about $2 billion, the financially struggling agency says.
In an announcement scheduled for later today, the service is expected to say the Saturday mail cutback would begin in August.
Under the new plan, mail would still be delivered to post office boxes on Saturdays. Post offices now open on Saturdays would remain open on Saturdays.
Apparently "millions of Americans" support the switch to a 5 day delivery schedule. These are the people who still believe the Pony Express is in the mail delivery business.
They're not. They're in the retiree pension and health benefits administration business. Most of the money you spend on postage doesn't go toward delivering the mail. It goes into the pockets of retired mailmen. And their doctors.
The Post Office isn't unique in that regard. Government Motors is also primarily a pension plan; their sideline just happens to be building cars instead of delivering mail.
I wonder if GM will ever build a car that only runs 5 days a week.
