Postal facility to stay open

From Douglaston Patch:

The Whitestone postal facility, which has been in danger of closure since 2011, has been saved, according to U.S. Rep. Gary Ackerman.

If the facility had been closed, more than 700 jobs in Queens would have been eliminated altogether, with a small number of jobs being transferred to the post office’s sorting center in Brooklyn.

Ackerman credited a near-constant campaign of workers, political leaders and community members who pressed the post office to change their decision, dating back to a rally in December.

What the hell kind of schmatta
is Moby Stavisky wearing?

Of course,
the moon faced Meng stands beside her
in staunch solidarity
with the borough's machine.


Better seeing that "moon"
instead of Moby's.

How many publicity-seeking hacks can you fit in one photo, without using a wide-angle lense? Come to think of it - with Moby in the photo, I'm surprised that the photographer didn't have to use a wide-angle lense...

Welcome to the socialism of the the founders of the United States: The Postal Service is answerable to the prevailing political winds and damn the taxpayers who have to pay for its deficits.

Great, now who's going to save the USPS?

The "going postal" expert,
David Berkowitz, will save the system.

Moby Stavisky must have bailed out the facility with some of that major loot that her North Flushing Senior Center rakes in.

It looks a lot like the NFSC
is a money laundry
for Toby's political campaign funding.

It's time for the feds to scope
that group.
