Cheapest way to mail and track documents going from US to Russia?

I need to mail some important documents from the US to Russia via a method that is trackable. The cheapest price I can find is $28.95 via USPS. Does anyone know of a less expensive method that includes tracking information? These are just paper documents, not a package. Thanks!

How to access WaPo archives online?

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. I know the names/dates of the articles, but they aren't showing up in my LexisNexis searches. (My library's microfilm WaPo collection only goes back to 1974.) Does anyone have another idea of where to look for archived newspaper articles online?

Glee, Seinfeld and a Question about Post-Modernism

Recommend me some good post-apocalyptic movies and books

I have just found out I'm a big fan of post apocalyptic fiction books. Somehow I like the idea of an individual or small group of survivors almost alone in the world trying to find out what the hell happened to the planet and fighting for their survival. What are some good books and movies the hive mind can recommend?

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.
