We'd start a half hour short but were still expected to get the mail up and out and be back on time. And once or twice a week, always beaten . . . we had to make the night pickups, and the schedule on the board was impossible—the truck wouldn't go that fast. You had to skip four or five boxes on the first run and the next time around they were stacked with mail and you stank, you ran with sweat jamming it into the sacks.

Charles Bukowski

Our atrophied brains reminded me of those caged birds which, when we let them go free, to let them escape, do not know how to fly. I was overcome by sadness. I told myself, ‘God made our brains not to make us think’. Then suddenly, in ’69 they stated to function again. We broke the cage, and we began to fly again.
