"How beautiful it is to do nothing, and to rest afterward."

[Spanish Proverb]

Ius luxuriae publice datum est

(The right to looseness has been officially given)

"Everyone carries a part of society on his shoulders," wrote Ludwig von Mises, "no one is relieved of his share of responsibility by others. And no one can find a safe way for himself if society is sweeping towards destruction. Therefore everyone, in his own interest, must thrust himself vigorously into the intellectual battle."

Apparently, the crossword puzzle that disappeared from the blog, came back.

I'm sure I sent you that thank you note...

DETROIT (AP) -- Some of those who are supposed to endure snow, rain and gloom of night to deliver the mail have resorted to hiding tons of it in garages, a self-storage unit and the dark of their basements.

Wow, that is pitiful! You think someone would have complained about it before 6 years was gone by.

I've heard of this before. Big time trouble when the mailman gets lazy.

Of course, he could toss all my flyers, third class, coupons, etc. and save me the grief.

I have two brothers-in-law who are mail carriers and a golfing acquaintance who retired from the postal service. All are fine men who would never do anything like this. Every trade, every profession, has its "slackers" but the postal service versions seem to make the news.

I don't think any of us would mind the junk mail not making it to our mailbox.

Not just confined to the uS, Douglas, this happened even in NZ where these things aren't "supposed" to happen. Not that I am implying they are "supposed" to happen in the US, you guys just have more scope.
