Canada Post: Since the back to work legislation, Canada Post seems to be rationing my mail. What I mean is, since they resumed mail delivery, my house has not gotten more than two letters a day. My neighbors have said similar things about their mail deliveries, no one is getting more than the lightest trickle of mail. I'm waiting on a number of items that I know have been in their system for a month... What's going on? [more inside]
Someone apparently opened a package in my mailbox and stole the mp4 player I had ordered from e-bay. There was no indication on the mailing envelope what the contents were: The person must have felt the package and guessed what it contained. They left the ripped open package on our porch, along with some other mail, and two Netflix envelopes, ripped open also, for a person further up the street. What do we do about this?

I'm trying to access a series of WaPo articles from 1968-1971, but I'm not having any luck with LexisNexis, Proquest, or the newspaper's website.

Does anyone have another idea of where to look for archived newspaper articles online?

Where should an aspiring indie Mac developer and his family move: SF Bay Area or Seattle (or Other)?
My wife and two kids and I are not able to renew the lease on the house we're renting in a Maryland suburb of DC (the landlord is selling his other house and moving back into this one), so we're looking to move at the end of August. I've also been contemplating a career change for a while, and as this "opportunity" has dropped in our lap, we're thinking about making a city change as well, that would benefit my intended Mac development career, possibly to the SF Bay Area or Seattle.
