Postal Heroes

Posted December 14, 2009 11:45 a.m. EST

Just got back from the Post Office! What a zoo! You’ve got to feel for postal workers this time of year. I’d like to show them some love.

Nominate your favorite postal worker. Your recommendation can include a US Postal Service worker, a UPS employee, a FedEx worker and so on.  Give us the story about what makes him or her great in your eyes. We’ll pick a winner and send them an autographed copy of my book Blue Ridge Reunion

Meanwhile, how do you navigate the thick postal traffic this time of year? What are the best times and locations to avoid lines? I bet there were at least 55 people waiting in line Saturday morning at the Cary Post Office off Wrenn Drive when I stopped by to mail some packages and at least a dozen folks in the automated machine line.
