AN ABOVE-THE-HEADLINE POSTSCRIPT
What have I learned today? I already knew I don't like to lose. Thus what I learned was that if one perseveres and calls the United States Postal Service from Washington D.C. to Chicago to various local post offices and regional distribution centers it is possible to intercept an envelope in transit. I should think by now the USPS has, nationwide, blocked my phone number. And that's fine. Because I won. We have the visa! And so my daughter's Monday flight is secure.
