Q: Is there anything that you like about the current Federal Government?

A: Yes, the Post Office.

37 cents to send a 1 ounce piece of paper anywhere within 3,537,441 square miles of territory, usually within three days. Not as cheap or as fast as email, but a great deal nontheless. If you are into sending postcards, it's even less-- 23 cents. And, in some Post Offices they are actually showing movies while you wait in line.

The stamps are a definite incentive, even FDR collected.

Too bad it took competition from FedEx and UPS for the USPS to get it right. You'd think that pride in governmental work would be enough.

Good news for the easily spooked, haven't heard of too many "postals" lately.
