      In the first bullet point, why is ‘might’ in quotation marks?

      Condolences to the family, friends and all those who have lost a 19 year old boy prematurely.

      An unmeasurable loss.

      This De Blasio’s NYC. Get used to it. Sad, but true.

      The post office on 104th street also admits there are several cases of mail fraud in the neighborhood. Letters are being stolen from outside mailboxes and the money orders are altered and cashed. I had to reissue several payments because my mail disappeared from the mailbox RIGHT OUTSIDE THE POST OFFICE. People should be made aware of this…

        Crime does not pay.

        A person convicted of mail theft faces a fine of up to $250,000 and up to five years in federal prison. Stealing mail is a felony offense in the United States.
