Irony alert on postal protest

This just in: Members of the postal unions and community supporters are planning a protest on Sept. 27 in every congressional district, asking the honorable congresspersons to do everything in their power to save the Postal Service.

That includes a demonstration outside Rep. Cathy McMorris Rodgers' office at 10 N. Post tomorrow from 4 to 5:30 p.m, the Washington Labor Council says.

And how did we find out about this? By e-mail.

So maybe we have a first-hand demonstration of what's at the heart of U.S. Postal Service's problem.

To be fair, the editors in Spokane mentioned that we did get a notice last week about the protest by mail. But we apparently only received one...perhaps postage was too expensive to send more?
