Happy Birthday, USPS!

Yes, I'm going postal again.  

Congress was invested with power by the Constitution to establish post offices and post roads, which they eventually did in 1792 with Washington signing into law An Act to establish the Post-Office and Post Roads within the United States.  Debate the previous December was actually quite an interesting exercise in determining the limits of non-delegation doctrine, but I'm not going to get into that right now.

Just celebrate that we still have such a department of general government, despite the GOP's best efforts to destroy it.
