That Was Quick!

Here's proof that someone at L'Enfant Plaza is reading Dead Tree Edition: The erroneous Postal Service Web page I wrote about yesterday was corrected early this morning.

The USPS Web site had not been updated when I checked it a few hours before the comment came in, so someone at Postal Service headquarters was obviously burning the midnight oil. Or maybe Bernstock's buddies who got the "Web modernization" contract outsourced the work to Asia.
