Reblogging this for the last comment because SO TRUE, RIGHT
I’m surprised more people didn’t realize this - if you read the books it’s clear how horrifying the concept of the Hunger Games really is. The movies will always use older actors to portray young people (heck there’s a whole tumblr dedicated to it). I remember when I read the books and and had in mind Actual Young People, and thinking “how in the heck are they going to show this on a movie? How is this a mainstream publication? Didn’t anyone remember Battle Royale?”
Based on my years working with the postal service, read this short brief on why the plan to cut Saturday service isn’t just stupid, it makes no sense EVEN TO THE POST OFFICE. Read about it here.
This isn’t about the reality of the postal system - this is about how a gang of crazy ideologues are trying to kill off the USPS artificially with legislative bullshit. Trust me, you do NOT want a private post office, one that can say “fuck you, lolz” when your mail isn’t delivered because the low rent people they hired decided to steal your tax refund or whatever.
