… stuff that has entered my visual field.
I saw a news report the other day lamenting the financial situation at the US Post Office. You may recall that the public has chosen to use other services for their correspondence needs. Things like email and FedEx are winning the day in the market place.
Well, here is what a saw this afternoon that gave me pause: At the post office I saw a postal delivery Jeep broken down on the side of the road. I knew it was a postal delivery Jeep because it had the zooming eagle head logo on the side. Nothing pause worthy there, but right in front of the Jeep was tow truck with the same logo.
That’s right folks… your postal service has its own fleet of tow trucks.
I have become convinced that the Post Office’s fight for funds has more to do with keeping the Post Office open rather than ensuring the public is served.
The second thing that gave me pause today was the show, The Biggest Looser. Specifically, I have to wonder about Americans that will watch a TV show about people loosing weight. WATCH A TV SHOW as OTHERS LOOSE WEIGHT!!!! What have we come to? Seriously…
NOTE: Rob pointed out my spelling mistake and (LOOSING should be LOSE and LOSING) my appologies to all sensitive spelers.
