Feds lift the ban on magazine delivery in New Orleans!

This is big news. Beginning Monday, if you are among the lucky people receiving mail delivery, it will now include magazines. That is, if after nine months you still have a subscription.

The USPS has been sending magazines back, or putting them in some limbo room somewhere, in an effort to cut corners after the storm took away a distribution center and most of their employees. They are still trying to find a way to avoid rehiring new employees (by doing away with home delivery altogether), but apparently they've decided to let the magazines through. Which means I need to call my old magazines and ask that they credit my accounts. Technically, they were supposed to have suspended the subscriptions, but every few months one has shown up at the door, so I'm assuming the suspensions were never actually done.
