When was the last time you enjoyed a U.S. Post Office building? This one in Middlebury, VT is a hold-out against strip mall locations outside of downtowns. #presinpink

    Our last time was showing our grandson, visiting recently from his home in Germany, the great 8th Avenue Post Office in Manhattan, and bragging about its facade having the world’s longest carved-in-stone inscription (so I’ve always understood) – “Neither snow nor rain nor heat nor gloom of night stays these couriers from the swift completion of their appointed rounds.”

    The building is being preserved, or at least transformed with our ruining it: “The Moynihan Station Development Corporation Board and the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey today announced the award of a construction contract to a nationally renowned builder to begin to transform the historic Farley Post Office Building in Manhattan into Moynihan Station.”

    A few weeks ago I had to use the main post office in Burlington, in the horrible mid-20th century federal building on Elmwood. But the folks who work there are wonderful. As I waited for one customer to finish their conversation, so I could pursue my own, my mind wandered across the street, to the office of Senator Bernie Sanders. It occurred to me that he must be such a strong advocate for postal workers in part due to just such conversations in just this place, albeit in earlier days.
