I stick up for the USPS all the time because I love getting mail — esp. since, for many years now, almost every delivery includes music presents for me. More than a mere excuse for a fun break, it’s almost kind of a judgement on the day itself. But it has to happen reasonably early in the afternoon. This business of the mail arriving after 6 o’clock is for the dead birds rotting at the bottom of a dumpster.
