Thanks for brightening my morning! As I read the front-page story on the lack of air conditioning at the post office, and state Rep. Milo Smith’s comment on how these conditions could cause someone to pass out, I was rolling on the floor laughing.

Appears to me that the writer of this story and those who express concern about these working conditions could not possibly have ever worked in any of the local factories in which temperatures far above the 90s are the norm during summertime in Indiana.


None of those factories or their poor, overheated, sweaty, stinky workers have ever made such a front-page story despite working in much worse conditions than our dear, normally spoiled-by-air-conditioning postal workers.

Cheers to those who continue to slave in sweltering conditions with absolutely no hope ever of having air conditioning. Thanks for keeping our economy moving so our postal workers will have jobs.
