        Over two weeks. Ninth-rate mail?

          the USPS average performance on the magazine dropped to 2-plus weeks back in the '80s. It has only gotten worse.

          one of the reasons we give primacy to the online versions

            I'm not complaining. I want the print version, but get my fix with the online one. I even had the on-line ones converted to magazines through Lulu.com, which can do them reasonably cheaply.

              Why can't we have the option to pay for first class mail any more ?!

                Strange that so many of us didn't get it this month. USPS hangover from the mail-in ballot onslaught???

                  Curiouser and curiouser.
                  New (bad) PR for delivery.- three and a half weeks and counting.

                      we talked to our printer today and they said mailing times of up to a month are frequent with all their customers this year. The nation's whole distribution system is seriously of whack (across the board).

                        Just saw a thread on my Nextdoor feed about people seeing UPS trucks regularly parking on their street, then people show up in private cars and they offload a bunch of their cargo. No, not a thievery ring; UPS is short enough on people/vehicles that it's apparently subcontracting to the citizenry.

                            Twenty-five years ago, I had a business venture that necessitated occasional due diligence visits to Guatemala. The postal service there was so unreliable that our palm greaser in Guatemala City, son-in-law of a General, in addition to a travel agency had a sort of private post office with private and business boxes, picking up foreign mail at the airport every day and distributing mail to business and private addresses.
                            He lived in a beautiful hacienda that required neither A/C nor heat in the perfect 72F, year-round temperature. The downside was the hacienda was surrounded by a ten-foot masonry wall topped with broken glass with a steel auto gate, the palatial grounds were patrolled by two ferocious Dobermans and private armed security men lived in the guest house.

                              I wonder if he has our missing T&FNs. No, the dobermans ate them.
