Why U.S. Mail Isn’t Delivered on Sunday

Filed under: — Al @ 12:52 pm

In case you needed further proof that the separation of church and state in America is not even close to enforced:

“Until 1912, mail was delivered 7 days a week. As the postal service grew in popularity and usage in the 1800s, local religious leaders were noticing a decline in Sunday morning church attendance due to local post offices doubling as gathering places. These leaders appealed to the government to intervene and close post offices on Sundays.”

    When I initially commented I appear to have clicked on the -Notify me when new comments are added- checkbox and now whenever a comment is added I get four emails with the exact same comment. Perhaps there is an easy method you can remove me from that service? Thanks a lot!
