The mayor of North Pole, Alaska is calling a recent postal service decision an assault on Christmas.
For years, the U.S. Postal Service has delivered thousands of letters to Santa Claus in North Pole, Alaska.
Now, in the interest of efficiency and security, the post office has changed its policy.
It will no longer deliver letters to Santa here, and requests for a North Pole postmark will be filled through its Anchorage office.
The decision has angered many residents, most notably the owner of the areas primary attraction, the Santa Claus house.

Santa has a great office there. I have been a couple times.

Now, in the interest of efficiency...
Note to the USPS, two words: Backround checks.

Like the guy doesn’t have access to kids except through this job.
Just like the oxymoron Military Intelligence, the USPS has its own oxymorons, efficiency and security.

During the 70’s, North Pole, AK had a road house (tavern, bar, restaurant) that served the best frog legs I ever had. Wonder if it is still there?

If the kids have paid for their stamps and addressed their letter to "North Pole", the above sounds like a genuine Federal crime involving illegal diversion of private mail.
