    No. No, no and a million times, no. I've had very little conversation with the administration, the Postal Service is The Postal Service. I report to a board of governors, a bipartisan board of governors, and that's where we, where my plans for what we do with The Postal Service get approved.

  5. Hunter Martin/Getty Images:

    It's really easy for the media and the administration to just focus on Lia and all the things that are hurting her and how she needs compassion right now, but I think we're the ones who truly need compassion right now, and we're the ones who are just being overlooked and told to just suck it up and deal with it and to accept second place. I think it's wrong, when we came here, we were told we were going to have equal opportunities, and it just seems like our administrators and parts of society, very small parts, because I believe most people know it's wrong, but that those people just think that we shouldn't care about winning. And that's wrong. You know, what message are you telling little girls? You're telling them that they shouldn't strive for first place, that they should be OK with second.
