Taking the bus to this morning's TPPC meeting, a postal worker boarded who I recognized as a regular rider. He explained that it was his day off, but that he had been called in to handle political mail. With the election next Tuesday, the United States Postal Service (USPS) is swamped with last minute direct mail pieces. The extra help is needed to get them to you on time.
So when you get that glossy in the next few days saying how fiscally conservative the candidate is, remember that the USPS had to pay overtime to get it to you.
