I hope everyone joins in the spirit of our new "Save The Boxes" campaign. If we can do it for the whales we can do it for the boxes.

Seriously, the drive-through mail collection boxes are very important for the safety and convenience of postal customers. The lack of these boxes causes serious safety issues for handicapped and elderly patrons. Relocating the boxes to the sidewalk in front of the P.O. (from their former place behind the P.O.) is causing traffic congestion in front, on Central Avenue.

Without a drive-through system everyone seeking to drop off mail must now find a parking space, get out of the vehicle to drop the mail, reenter the vehicles and back out into traffic, causing congestion.

The boxes have been damaged (apparently by truck traffic) at the rear of the P.O. Two things need to be done here: replace the boxes on the elevated area owned by the City, and place bollards (steel posts) in front and back of the boxes (just like the P.O. has recently done at its own parking area. A camera to identify vehicles causing any damage is also appropriate.

A concrete light standard remains in the middle of the former box area, and has not been damaged.

I will continue my attempts to contact the Postmaster. But, I think he should work with the City to restore the boxes to their former location. I hope this new sidewalk box location will not prove to be the proximate cause of accidents or injuries to patrons or vehicles on Central.

The postal collection boxes are designed for pass-through traffic. Let's use them as intended.



Anyone paying attention to American politics must, by now, know that this country is in dangerous trouble. A glimpse of DRUDGE'S headlines today tells a story of massively corrupt government.

Just think, had Hillary Clinton won the election and become president, all of this would likely never be known. Her massive load of fireworks on that New York dock would have lit the night sky, and every lunatic Lefty would have been running amuck with unbridled joy.

"Hillary Clinton may have lit the fuse for her victory celebration a little too soon — by planning an Election Night explosion of fireworks over the Hudson River, The Post has learned.

Law enforcement officials and the FDNY have been told to prepare for a barge-launched pyrotechnic display off Manhattan’s Javits Center, where Clinton and running mate Tim Kaine will join their supporters for the Nov. 8 vote count, sources said. The aerial detonations would last for two minutes, with the triumphal celebration permitted to start as early as 9:30 p.m. — a mere half-hour after the polls close in New York, sources said." (NEW YORK POST).

That anticipated "triumphal" moment turned out to be "Trumphal".

This country is in a mess. Hillary Clinton is gone, but her presence is felt in the remnants of her Deep State; I think the term Dark State is more appropriate. All of her seditious, fifth column arch minions remain a problem for a new president seeking to unify and protect the nation. Liberal Democrats don't want the country's political wounds to heal; people like Nancy Pelosi and Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer only fight for political power and influence. They care nothing for the general welfare of the nation. They care only for a source of perpetual votes, through illegal immigration.

We need a dynamic new Attorney General (Sessions has failed) to plow through the swamp, following Trump as he drives a Caterpillar D-12 dozer with a double-shank ripper through the middle of that swamp.

It's ugly, but necessary. When the job is done we can set-off that cache of fireworks.
