    Neither snow nor rain nor heat nor temporary lost of gravity nor gloom of night stays these couriers from the swift completion of their appointed rounds.

    Funny, I just read those words (well, most of them) as I passed the NY Post Office building yesterday on my way to the NY Liberty game.

    I found this on the internet...

    "...the New York Post Office Building in 1914. This inscription appeared on the building:

    "Neither snow nor rain not heat nor gloom of night stays these couriers from the swift completion of their appointed rounds."

    Everyone thinks this is the motto of the post office, but they actually have no motto."

    This was an ad posted in an March 1860 newspaper looking for "posties"...
    "Wanted: Young, skinny, wiry fellows not over 18. Must be expert riders willing to risk death daily. Orphans preferred." Sounds like a current day messenger ad...hehehe

    Sorry to have temporarily hijacked this thread.
