US Postal Service, are you listening?

So eBay holds it, but someone collects it. This is good tracking. I have never seen this on USPS stuff – it just says “Delivered”. A friend is waiting for a registered letter from Chicago for the last week. No tracking at all.

Better get it together, USPS. And Congress, lay off making them pay retirement benefits up front. For a “conservative” Congress, supposedly advocating for business, you are killing this one.
