Communique again

Well here it is April 1st and still no CC. Anyone missing theirs? Contacted the CORSA office via email but no response. Anyone have contact info to someone who responds? Yes I know it may be with the PO but I'd still like to talk to someone from CORSA. This is un-acceptable. EddieB Dade City,Fl

Given that I think the CC is sent "magazine rate" versus first class -- which means first class has "priority"; AND, since the current head of the USPS has further "hobbled" an institution that is not known expert efficiency, I think your irritation is over wrought.

People have complained here about first class mail being "overdue".

I have no problem getting solicitations / junk mail: I probably fill a bag with the paper every week.

Since the elections are past, and people are still complaining about the U.S.P.S., I guess we can't Blame Trump for it.
PMG has a new Boss, and it hasn't changed, so if it was all political, it should have been fixed by now.

Hi Everybody,

I can assure you that the Communiques are being printed and put in the mail on-time. Late delivery is due to our friends at the United States Postal Service. I can't say that it will do any good, but I suggest you write to your representatives in Washington, in both the House and Senate, and let them know what's going on.

Trump's Post Master General "LeJoy" is still in charge - unfortunately. Not easy to fire the PMG. Sadly.

Not sure why you think there is a new PMG Amel, must be listening to "alternative facts".

Delivery time complaints aren't new folks. Before internet was a word there were complaints about delivery time differences. Back then the complaint was the 'good parts' advertised in the COMMUNIQUE were all gone before some even received their copy of the magazine. CORSA staff answered the same then too; all copies are mailed at the same time.

The letter to the editor back then sometimes requested 1st class mail and many asked for a 'sleeve' to protect the magazine from being damaged in handling. CORSA always stated that 1st class was too costly. (which is true of course)

I love the print edition ( I rec'd mine about a week ago). I sit in front of a computer at work all day - I love coming home to something I can physically hold, and turn pages, not worry about the battery being charged, etc.

Long live the Print Edition! I'm only 40....so definitely in the younger segment of the Corvair world, still.

Eric, I prefer reading printed things. Just pointing out there is a way around the inconsistent USPS delivery schedule. Fun fact: you can sign up online for a free USPS account, and they email you every day with what is coming to your mailbox. No email that day? You're not getting any mail that day. Even this service is not perfect though. I'll get notice of mail incoming, and it doesn't show until the next day.
