New Orleans:
World’s largest mail truck - When fire consumed a mail truck Jan. 23 on Interstate 10, the U.S. Postal Service 18-wheeler immediately became a candidate for the Guinness Book of World Records for carrying the most pounds per square inch in the world. If you think you lost any mail in it, call 589-1420 or (800) 275-8777. They’ll tell you they can’t help you. Given the U.S. Postal Service will not reveal its delivery complaints, it’s easy to imagine every gripe within a 30-mile radius or a 30-day period on either side of the crash will be answered: It burned up. We’re on at least the fourth New Orleans postmaster post-Katrina. Let’s hope this one is equal to the task. -
