Going Postal


Forty-six years ago today, at midnight, U.S. Postal Workers began an illegal strike, which went on for eight days. Although such a strike would probably not make much difference today, President Nixon responded by deploying the military to deliver mail in some New York locations. The strike ended after eight days and no one was fired.
