This issue continues to be a mess under this administration and to my knowledge it violates an international postal convention. Historically, proper postage affixed to the outside of the package destined for a quarantine station covered the journey to the final destination, i.e., from the quarantine station to the address of the assigned holder of the numbered green-and-yellow permit quarantine sticker. Aything less than this, it seems to me, constitutes a violation of the international postal convention, which, as I understood it,, had the status of a treaty. Let us all write our congressmen/congresspersons. With the "improved " organization of federal departments, divisions and bureaus, resulting in greater security, greater efficiency, and the rapid rebuilding of New Orleans back to its original status (of about 1740?), the erosion of what was a stable and working postal system has revealed what some of us thought all along: "Fixed" also means its opposite, as in pet animals. And what is the opposite of the "Midas touch" ?
