EDITORIAL >> Broken glass still lies in parking lot

Someone’s sideview mirror must have broken during a visit to the Jacksonville post office during the ice storm early last month.

There’s broken glass in two parking spots in front of the entrance, but most visitors don’t realize they parked their cars on the glass and stepped on it until it’s too late. They’ll mutter something unmentionable here, although post office employees must see the glass every day as they cross the parking lot to get the mail out of the mail boxes in the evening.

The employees have been told several times about the broken glass. Some of them shrug and say they’ll tell someone to clean it up. Others are busy making dinner plans with their spouses on the phone. Don’t they have a broom and a dust pan at the post office?
