The U.S. Postal Service has agreed to reverse changes that slowed mail service nationwide, settling a lawsuit filed by Montana's Democratic Gov. Steve Bullock. https://t.co/1m4fqUTBhb

With all the insane news over the past week this development hasn’t gotten much coverage: Montana Governor Steve Bullock sued Brooklyn Mob Louis DeJoy in Federal court and won an injunction that protects all 50 states from coordinated sabotage.
That’s a VERY big deal, even though good chunks of DeJoy’s damage is done and already caused its intended havoc.
Mainstream media is reporting this as “Postal Service agrees to reverse changes” but DeJoy was name-checked in the lawsuit which, ya know, would spur active law-breakers to sit up straight and quit their tomfoolery.
Quoting Bullock from Associated Press:
Montanans never gave up this fight, and as a result, we are ensuring stability through and beyond the election by immediately restoring the mail services folks rely on, whether it’s receiving vital medication or ensuring they can pay their bills on time
been following this story for my blog and will continue; if you have any information on USPS or DeJoy DMs open or firstname.lastname@example.org

As for-profit media continues to fail us, it’s more important than ever to find reliable sources. Authentic storytelling exists—you just have to look for it. On this blog you’ll get ideas, not ideology. Sass with class. Reporting with rapport. Evidence with a touch of evil. You get the idea.
