September 7th Neither Rain Nor Snow Day

So we all think the saying “Neither rain nor snow nor heat nor gloom of night, stays these couriers from the the swift completion of their appointed rounds” belongs to the post office. It says that on the New York Post office opened on September 7th, 1914 in New York City. Guess what, that has never been, now will ever be, the motto of the Post Office. It was in a book written about a Greek-Persian War sometime in 500-499 BC, “The Persian Wars” written by Herodotus. Can one say plagiarized!

How to celebrate – Support your local Post Office. Mail something today, even if it’s to yourself. Visit New York City.
