EU nations should send a cease and decist letter to USPS, because the US wasnt first with Postal Service. There is as always prior art elsewhere.

lamers.

The link seems to be pointing elsewhere, unless I’m missing something.

I thought that so, too, Bobby, but it’s an item at the end of the grocery-list title that starts the page (right under the world map).

On the bright side, this recent attention prompted me to re-discover this great band - they are now on my current driving mix. Hopefully it will do the same for others.

Berryfloor, prior art is for patents.

Is Interpol next?

It’s also part of the article on dntel. Nothing better than electronic pop!

USPS rocks alot more than so called ‘artists’ like the postal service could imagine. Imagine 2 day air service from New York to the left coast for $3.95. or 300 million addresses served everyday. No wonder Lance and the boys are proud to wear the flying eagle colors.
