Apparently, the U.S. Postal service is trying to make the Postal Service change its name. This is the only thing that I've been able to find about the rumor is this piece from Pitchfork's Daily Music News:

Tamborello notes: ". . . actually, the U.S. Postal Service sent us a cease-and-desist letter. We're talking to them right now, it's not figured out yet. So all these remixes I've had to do under different names."

Ridiculous! I'm sure if it were up to Ashcroft bands like the Dead Kennedys, Bush, Anthrax, the Presidents Of The United States Of America, and classic '80s indie outlet I.R.S. would have to pack it up, too. It just goes to illustrate the misplaced priorities of this administration. I mean, if the federal government sends any band a cease-and-desist letter this year, it should be Staind! [pitchfork]

suggested new name: I-5 Corduroy
