When timing bites you in the ass

The Slice column that will appear in Friday's paper deals with some problems I am having with mail delivery at home.

It's not a bitter screed. But you can judge for yourself tomorrow.

I wrote it on Monday, which is my deadline for Fridays.

But by the middle of this week, the post office was in the news because of a South Hill carrier stealing or at least not delivering mail. I'm pretty sure this is unrelated to my problem. But now there is every possibility that my column tomorrow will look like clueless piling on. Which I hate.

And I can't wait for Totaltool55 or Dmbphukboy to post an online comment saying, “Don't you read your own paper?”
