Sounds like someone at the DoHS is channeling Taiichi Ohno and Shigeo Shingo. Postal carriers are the mizusumashi/water spiders/whirligigs of the U.S.

' The US Postal Service is, and has been, a shining beacon of efficient execution in American federal institutions.'

Yeesh! Going by my experiences with them, I dread to think what the rest of the federal institutions are like. Seriously -- it's the *least* efficient postal service I've dealt with in the developed world, across 3 continents.

From reports I can find, it looks like the man with the plan is named Gerry McKiernan. Or maybe he is only the mouthpiece for the Postal Service.

Thomas, thanks for the source. I wonder if he is indeed the brains are only the spokesman.

Justin, do you have any idea of the sheer volume of mail the US Postal Service handles compared to the post in other developed countries? Yet typically the mail gets there and gets there on time. And I hope one of the countries to which you're referring isn't Italy. At one point, they had a most efficient method of dealing with an ever-increasing backlog of undelivered mail: they took it all out and burned it.

I thought the men behind the Postal Service were Ben Gibbard and Jimmy Tamborello...

Has anyone heard of that band? What is it? Oh: Death Cab for Andy. That's the one.

Andrew

I don't know if I should be flattered or insulted.

Andrew

whoa. I never realized that "sanford may" and "san" were the same person. That makes WAY too much sense.

Let's just hope they don't let contract out UPS to deliver antibiotics, lest we come home from work during an outbreak to find a little yellow and brown delivery notice taped to our front door.

"Sorry we missed you! Please sign to have Sarin antidote delivered."

Mike: spot on!
