Wrecked 'em? It killed 'em!*

Sadly, it has happened again.

Unless my article was the empty envelope, it was not merely damaged but entirely lost!
Happily, I can find a copy of the Fall 2009 edition of The Objective Standard at my local Barnes & Noble. Well, there was one ten days ago.






*This old joke is what ran through my head as I read the post office's apology.
Teacher: So Johnny, how was your weekend?
Johnny: Horrible. A car hit my dog, right in the a**!
Teacher (correcting Johnny's language): Rectum.
Johnny: Wrecked 'em? It killed 'em!

The Objective Standard is the gold standard for journalism today--and, like gold, it's too valuable to ship through the mail! :-)

I'm finding that out!

I'd like to think that there is someone, somewhere who is really benefitting from reading our copy of The Objective Standard at the very least.

That's very strange. I, too, received an empty, undamaged envelope with no Objective Standard last week. I've been a subscriber since the beginning and this is the first time that's happened.

One more occurrence and we'll have to suspect enemy action!

It's happened to us twice, now! Both were the Fall issue. Hmmmm.

And, there's this, and this blatant disregard for the warning labels! But I'm trying to not to jump to any conclusions just yet. We need more evidence.

Someone should keep track of this - I pick me. Thanks for the data point.

The new TOS is here! The new TOS is here!

Intact.

Phew. One less thing to be concerned about - for now.
