Not so stainless after all, Mr. "All-Clad"

I am the proud new owner of an All-Clad 12" skillet. It's awesome. However, after a week—and four uses or so—my new pan has greasy-looking spots in the cooking surface that won't come off even when I scrub pretty vigorously. What is this? Is there anything I can do about it? Is it even a problem?

How do I run for US House in New York State as a TPC?

How do I run for U.S. House of Representatives in New York State as a Third Party Candidate? Also, is too late to run in 2010? I was planning on running in 2012, but there's a bit of an opening in 2010 so if I could still do that, I would like to. Also, I want to know how to run for the U.S. House of Representatives, I could care less about actually getting elected for the job. What paperwork do I fill out, how do I get my name on a Diebold machine, etc..? Oh, and money really isn't a concern, so forget about the fund raising portion.

How nitpicky is the Post Office with regards to Media Mail?

How does the Post Office confirm that media mail is actually media mail? I'm shipping four boxes of books from Los Angeles to Arlington.
