Postal woes in LA-LA Land

As if Los Angeles didn't have enough problems the Los Angeles Times reports that residents are complaining that mail delivery is less than heavenly in the City of Angels.

According to an article that appeared in yesterday's paper, "Officials acknowledged serious problems even as more complaints piled up about mail that is delivered late at night, magazines and newspapers that arrive months after publication, and mail that is dropped off miles from its intended destination."

The article goes on to say, "Letter carriers have complained for months that the U.S. Postal Service's automated mail-sorting system has forced them to begin their deliveries later, meaning that letters and packages often are dropped off late in the evening, as late as 11 p.m. in some areas. "

"Carriers say they have startled residents by arriving on their porches well after dark. Union officials say some carriers have suffered injuries after tripping in the dark or have been bitten by dogs who charged out at them through unlocked screen doors."
