All you have to do is listen to the radio channels and music they listen to, to know who they are.

worked there for over thirty years and was surrounded by right wingers. He could never understand why they would vote against their own interest.

...but liberal nonetheless. I guess they're trying to keep the numbers in Louisville down for Mitch?

It doesn't matter whether the area is blue or red, each postal worker goes by his/her own beliefs. However I remember the days when US Postal workers had to be bonded couriers. They had their credit and legal history checked out before they were hired by the USPS. At the time of hiring there was a liability bond for each employee against their screwing up in anyway i.e., if they ever stole or lost something of value it was covered by insurance, and they were considered responsible.

Whatever happened to those days when people were expected to hold to a high standard?
