Ros-Lehtinen in the news: PO maintenance and not a rubber stamp

Somehow these two items in the Miami Herald have an internal affinity. On Wednesday we read (way back in the Metro pages) that she’s wounded by declarations that she’s a rubber stamp, and on Thursday up pops a story saying she’s being called on to fix problems with the Post Office in Coconut Grove. Well, what is more associated with rubber stamps than Post Offices? I see appropriate written all over this connection. Yes, stamp the word appropriate on these stories.

I indulged my PO complaint mode and posted a comment on Thursday’s story suggesting that we retire Ros-Lehtinen and put her to work maintaining U.S. Post Offices. The one I attend in Miami Beach (71st Street) needs the weeds cut.
