    If he came up inhouse through the ranks,he wouldn’t have attained his college degrees.One of the few in management with a legit degree.

    Hey Luke, you think you can do something about the llvs for the packages ?you know there is no space, no shelves, 4 feet of height in back (already 5 carriers out with back problems this year ) and the packages get crushed daily. These death traps are not made to hold/work out of back, with 50_100 packages daily and fss trays,DPs trays and tubs of cased mail .my guess is you are just another going eye guy that will just say the carriers will make it work.the injuries are mounting ,the damage reports are mounting, the morale is all time low. You know you can build a house with a handsaw,hammer,and screwdriver,but this isn’t 1614.

    Seriously!?!?!? You think our top managment need more than the GED’s that many of them have? SInce he didn’t come through the old crony system he may actually do some good.

    Most, if not all, postal managers that have any sort of a degree got them by taking online courses while at work. How many fake degrees can be found on many of the padded up 991’s out there?

    To my friend Mr. Zip…I admire your optimism and certainly hope you are right! However, after 34 years of working with some of the most well educated individuals one could imagine, including a Yale graduate, the only thing I have learned is that common sense will always prevail over education. The only problem being… It is not always so common! Do not be fooled by education. Any one can buy one these days!
