5-day delivery: Months, even years away

http://www.federaltimes.com

You’ll still have to check the mailbox six days a week for the foreseeable future.
I sat down yesterday with Dan Blair, chairman of the Postal Regulatory Commission, to talk about the Postal Service’s request to switch to 5-day delivery.

Congress would have to approve it; the PRC would have to review it; the Postal Service would have to work out logistics.

After weeks of tough questions from Republicans, the Senate confirmed Eric Holder as attorney general this evening. The vote was 75-21.
A few Republicans took to the Senate floor before the 6:15 p.m. vote, questioning changes in Holder’s stances on counterterrorism and detaining terrorist suspects without Geneva Convention rights. Sen. John Cornyn, R-Texas, said Holder once supported detaining suspects without those rights but is now strongly against the Bush administration’s counterterrorism stances.
