Re: “Postal service

Randy F - thanks for your thoughts on this. Lots of differing opinions, I guess. I had been wondering what the actual LAW (if any) states about this issue. Years ago, when I distributed political flyers, we were told not to put them in mailboxes, but rather rubber band or tape them to the door knob, but even then we never learned whether this was LAW or just a "guide" from the post office. Using the USC you listed, it states a box erected for receiving official stamped mail from the post office cannot be used [in any way - in or on top of or taped to] for un-stamped items. However, the post [that the box sits on] is NOT considered part of the box. So, there we have it! Thanks!

Re: “Postal service

Sandra - that's a good point; one I didn't think about. The box is YOUR property; therefore, the post office shouldn't have say about who else touches it. You, however, have that right.

Re: “Postal service

The article states that 35 years ago, a USPS "rule" that the inside of a mail box is postal property was upheld in the courts. Later, the USPS added to the "rule," stating the box itself, but not the post, is post office property. So, if this isn't an actual law, I hope the court rules in flyer-man's favor. Anyone can make up a "rule," but does that make it a legality that we have to "obey"?

Re: “Imperfect choice

Stromboli, I checked out The Bay Centre -- very nice. Shows what can happen if everyone tries hard.

Re: “Imperfect choice

I don't live in Missoula, so I hope you don't mind that I comment. I do visit quite often - I have for 25 years. Love lots about your town, but the best thing is your vibrant, fun downtown - better than many, many other places I've been. In fact, I always compare yours to the others, and they seldom stack up. It would be a SHAME to lose this beautiful building, so how 'bout keeping the facade and putting the Marriott behind it? Not crazy about the idea of another hotel (and years ago, I worked at Marriott's corporate HDQs in D.C. in development), but if it doesn't LOOK like the cookie cutter Residence Inns, it might not be so bad. A little secret: if a corporation wants to build something bad enough, they'll go along with most reasonable and feasible requirements to fit the town they want to be in. (McDonald's is an example; several in Illinois were built to match the downtown architectural styles and many have changed or eliminated signage, etc.) Is it worth a try to ask them nicely?

Re: “Fear meets loathing

Ms. Sherman justifies her desire to keep Muslims out of MT by stating she's only concerned about the safety of the American people. If she's truly concerned about safety, she should return to Texas and work hard for some tougher gun regulations, safety/training for all gun owners, etc., as 805 Texans, including children, died from gun violence in 2010 (the last year I could find stats for).
