USPS delivery of campaign mail improves

Something must have happened at the USPS earlier this week.

The delivery of campaign mail changed from roughly five to six days to a much improved time frame of two to three days.

Hotly contested congressional races likely caused the change in mindset.

Facebook IPO not so hot after all

The long awaited initial stock offering of Facebook was a flop Friday. The shares had to be support by the offerings underwriters to keep the price from falling below the initial sale price of $38.

The weak reception is not a good sign for markets going forward.

Some candidates mustering up campaign mail in CD 8

8th Congressional District candidates Phil Liberatore, Brad Mitzelfelt, Ryan McEachron and Paul Cook have managed to get out campaign mail in the race to head to Washington D.C.

Nothing from the remainder of the vast field of candidates.

Cook might want to have a word with his consultant though.

His mail is being addressed to individual voters instead of households. A much costlier approach.
