On a related note, I had a problem last year getting a piece of mail (original documents I wasn’t allowed to fax) quickly from home to a government building in my state capital. It was delayed for days to go through what I assume was some sort of anthrax-type screening. I called the government office to check up on the delivery of my time-sensitive mail, and was annoyed to learn of the standard delay only after I sent the documents regular mail as suggested by that office. Said the state employee, “Oh, well, next time you need to get something here quickly, just send it FedEx - comes right to us!”
Tip of the Day for the would-be terrorist: after spending hundreds of thousands or millions of bucks in your synthesis of your panic-inducing bio-agent, be sure to spend the extra $9.95 to ensure prompt delivery. :eek: :smack:
You really just can’t make this sort of thing up.
