Snail is right. On 7/1 I sent a first class letter to the Boston area from
Seattle. The seller contacted me Monday asking if I had sent the M.O. It
arrived today 7/11. 10 days. I could have driven there in half the time.

Great. Now there's going to be a run on eight-day fuses...
Seriously, though, some places just seem to take longer to get mail
into and out of than others. About a year ago, I did a trade with
someone here on the NG (Iain, maybe?), and he was starting to get
concerned because his package didn't get here in the time it takes
stuff to get to most other places. I wasn't a bit worried because I
