re: marketplace

my favorite lines were...

"The government is not terribly good at knowing what individual people want."

"Well, we, we own the post office, and they'll do as we say."

Ohhhhhhhhhh... Now I feel stupid for believing it for so many minutes.

oh, you shouldn't. i believed it the whole way through, listening to it on the radio. (that's why i had to redeem myself and fool other people.)

it wasn't until Kai Ryssdal said, "come on, guys...check your calendars..."

really, the PO comment should have tipped me off, but by the time i heard that i was so enraged, it just seemed like the sort of thing the gov't would say...
