  • Post Office should prepare for mass mailing, says citizen

    To the editor:

    Last Thursday, when the mail man delivered my mail, there was no Democrat. I immediately called the office to see if my subscription was still in effect. It was, so I then called the post office. I was told that every family received a free paper. I then asked why no one in my building received one. She repeated the same thing - our carriers were to be back at the post office by 5 p.m. (my mail man comes to my house between 2:30 and 3 p.m. and yet no paper). I was then told the my paper would be in my box on Friday.
