Re: Friday Night Massacre at USPS

August 5, 1981 ... when Reagan fired the air traffic controllers. That, to me, is what really started that in earnest.

Re: Matt Sheppard

That was done 2-3 years ago. Dan Dickerson went to TV, Mario Impemba to radio for 5-6 games. The following season, the experiment was over. See this story: https://www.freep.com/story/sports/mlb/tigers/2016/02/19/detroit-tigers-broadcasters-tv-radio/80603572/ Correct. Personally, I thought each was...

Re: Friday Night Massacre at USPS

Or it could have stayed a department and been funded every year with a budget outlay the way they did from its inception until 1982. Turning into a business because “reasons” isn’t good enough of an explanation. There was no reason to quasi-privatize it. None. Agreed. With some kind of checks and b...

Re: Friday Night Massacre at USPS

Any service needs to adapt to its environment. The USPS still operates like it did when they rolled out ZIP codes long before how time sensitive information is sent and delivered.

It can still be a service and evolve with the times.

Re: MAC has cancelled its 2020 football season

College football is broken. I'd be shocked if after this pandemic is over that the same FBS / FCS setup survives intact.

The difference between game day in East Lansing / Ann Arbor / South Bend couldn't be more different than game day in Mt. Pleasant / Kalamazoo / Ypsilanti.

Re: Friday Night Massacre at USPS

Residential First Class mail should be delivered less frequently.

One week your zip code gets mail M-W-Sa, the next week it's delivered Tu-Th-F. Want it more frequently? Pay for that service.

Delivery to commercial addresses stays the same.

Re: Matt Sheppard

They should do an experiment during this "season" and move Dickerson to TV and Shep to radio.

Oakland University testing how far they can push the limits

Here's an extremely interesting study in just how far people will go in the name of COVID safety. A couple days ago when they released their back to campus plan, Oakland University was going to make it mandatory for on-campus residents, staff, and athletes to wear a BioButton on their chest 24/7 dur...

Re: A Conundrum - What would you choose?

1, 1, 1, 1, 1, 1, 1, 1, 1, 1, 1, 1

No conundrum here since I dislike both candidates pretty much equally.

Did I mention 1?

Free Press & News putting up paywall on Aug 12

Honestly, I'm shocked this didn't happen a long time ago with how prevalent ad blocking is now.

It'll be interesting to see if it helps or hurts their bottom line.

Re: Crooked pile of shit Trump wants to delay election

The whole thing is so pathetic and such a sad commentary on American politics. We no longer select a person for the highest political office in the land because of their qualifications (Trump) or their actual ability to perform the job due to diminished mental capacity (Trump and Biden) but because ...
