You can always count on the United States Postal Service to make waiting fora package exciting. On 28 Sep 01 a package was mailed from SanFrancisco to my house in Alameda. This means the package had to travelapproximately 10 miles. The package was crammed in our mailslotyesterday. It took the USPS seven business days to deliver thatpackage!I could have walked the package from San Francisco to Alamedaseveral times in that span of time, including the time I'd spendincarcerated for walking on the Bay Bridge. The front page of the San Francisco Chronicle yesterday had a five inchby ten inch color picture of an F-18 fighter-bomber on the deck of anaircraft carrier. Being the Chronicle (the "ChronicallyWrong?"), it was identified as an F-14. Oops.
