Sticky fingered postal workers blamed for Netflix thefts
We're starting to think our usual method of monetary conveyance -- affixing a few postal stamps to a wad of hundies -- might not be as secure as we once thought, since some postal workers in Lyons, Colorado, have been outed for swiping rented Netflix DVDs enroute to their final legal destination. Steve Swasey of Netflix said that it is a rare occurrence for the bright red rentals to go missing like this, but there were 503 movies missing by the time they got an investigation underway, which seems like it might have raised a few more eyebrows a bit sooner. Let's just hope they get this figured out before we order us up a bit of "The Ten Commandments" because when we need us a Heston fix, we need it fast.
