Our town was mentioned in the national news over the past couple of days due to an obituary. I bet in the next couple of days it will make the national news due to a scandal at the local post office. Both stories involve the local newspaper.
Earlier this week our newspaper ran a moving and poetic obituary on a former resident, a Vietnam veteran, who died in a Veterans’ home in Montana. The story made the national news. If you read the article, it also provides a link to the actual obituary.
Then, late Thursday afternoon, the paper broke a story about thousands of pieces of mail being thrown in dumpsters behind the post office by postal employees. I believe I have mentioned here my frustration with late or non-existent mail delivery. Well, now we know what has been happening.
Both these stories will elicit Baboon reactions and comments, so my question is simple:
Comment on these stories and your reactions to them.
