A turtle could have brought it faster

It took the post office 4 days to deliver a letter from my doctor to me. He's about 30 blocks away.

Semi-random thoughts

  • Some people just won't accept an apology.
  • The sidetrip to Jordan segment of my wife's trip to Israel next month has been cancelled.
  • My doctor prescribed a nasal spray to help my irritated nasal passages. I sent the prescription to my insurance company's mail order department, along with a request to refill two of my other prescriptions. Over the weekend I got an e-mail and a phone message telling me my insurance plan didn't cover it. So I called my doctor's office to ask them for a prescription that could be filled locally. Sometimes my insurance company will cover things locally that are not covered by mail order.  I was told they were mailing the prescription right out. That was yesterday. Today I got a package from the mail order operation. The nasal spray was included with the two refills. I guess they do cover it.
    • UPDATE: It turns out the messages I got from the mail order pharmacy were not wrong. Along with my other prescriptions I mistakenly sent them one for something I know is not covered, and always get somewhere else. I assumed the messages were about the item I was ordering for the first time.

Thugs win one, lose one

Somali pirates hijack ship with 23 crew members

Plat du jour--guest submission

Joanne keeps finding them. Has the driver's computer gone nuts? Is it a comment on political correctness? A personal corporation named "Crazy?"
