That partisan post office.

I tried to buy stamps this morning. But they were very partisan! Why does the government put pictures of things on stamps? Why are they not exactly square? And why are stamps so sticky? And why do post office employees object to such interesting questions when they are asked politely, if insistently? There is certainly a troubling lack of civility in our nation today, which I find alarming.

"There is certainly a troubling lack of civility in our nation today, which I find alarming."

Sadly this is true... But on the plus side, now that I am using a non-partisan Mac I can gaze upon your gigantic head (jam-packed with non-partisan goodness) as it was no doubt meant to be gazed upon..

Altmouse! You skeez. Was that you I saw doing the "Hi, Sailor" routine at Sunset and Vine? Yeah, sure, "buying stamps." Whatever.

I agree with you about the USPS. Fortunately, reading your friend Professor Glenn Reynolds has caused me to understand that the Singularity is near. Soon, we'll be able to mail things with our computer-augmented hyperintelligent brains. Most things we order online will be downloaded directly into our heads (which'll be lots bigger, so you won't stand out in a crowd anymore).

On the negative side, those of us who wish to be constitutional law scholars will simply download every iota of constitutional law ever compiled. That said, I'm sure you'll still be able to get by on your good looks and charm.

What I especially loathe are the so-called breast cancer stamps. Why do they always have to portray the female diseases in a positive light? It's sexist against men! Where's the erectile dysfunction stamp?

I like the bird stamps. I make little frames out of toothpicks and then hang them on the wall. This is a very nice art collection for less than forty cents a painting. I wish the USPS had stamps of angels.

Why is Jesus Christ not on a stamp. That is what I want to know. Am I the only person who is not afraid to ask? Jesus.
