I talked to a friend of mine that works for Bureau of Land Management and they have the day off today too. I guess all non-essential government employees love the guy who was president 30 years ago so much that they can't bear to come to work?

that's just mail, USPS guy still delivered my packages.
yup, from the article:

"We will provide limited package delivery service on that day to ensure that our network remains fluid and we do not experience any impacts to our package delivery operations that might negatively affect our customers or business partners during the remainder of our busy holiday season," officials said.

Translation: We know you don't give a fuck about anything that comes in the mail except for packages, so we'll take our sweet time delivering the pile of paper that you all throw directly in the trash every day.

It happens every time a former President dies. They consider it a federal holiday
