We received a letter from the U.S. Census Bureau yesterday.
We were thus duly informed that we would soon be receiving a letter from the U.S. Census Bureau. May I assume that maybe 200 million such letters were delivered?
If the total cost per letter - labor, materials, delivery - is only a dime, the net cost would be 20 million dollars. I'm of the opinion that it's more likely that each letter costs 35 cents, or 70 million bucks. Jeez.
Thus spake the rabbit.
