Dear Mr. Fixer,

Here is your pigeon.

Talk about a sign of the times. The Post Office is in such dire financial straits that the postmaster general is considering only delivering mail five days a week.


He can't carry much but he's cheaper than stamps and letter carriers. It seems we can't exploit our Chinese and Korean employees (contract workers, no benefits, less pay) enough to keep up Saturday deliveries so now everybody gets their own carrier pigeon.
