At least one of us won't have to charge in with an Uzi.

The post office has done something smart and efficient. Yes, the US Postal Service. The guys who make us pay one more penny per letter we mail so that they can buy the rights to "Fly Like an Eagle" from the goddamn Eagles.

At the post office near my work, they have a van parked outside selling stamps. That's it. That's all it does. This way, when people go into the main office to send package via registered mail or to buy a money order, they do not force those of us who just want to pick up a book of stamps on their lunch hour to wait on a huge line.

Will wonders never cease? This just goes to show that there are smart people out there trying to make things work well. Are the Stonecutters really at work keeping things like this down? How is it that in the most poorly run place in the entire country can think of something as simple as a stamp stand while precious hours are wasted in almost every other post office in the nation?
