To celebrate the 30th Anniversary of the original release of Star Wars, the LucasFilm branding empire has subjugated yet another hapless bystander into its Jedi-peddling ranks: The United States Postal Service. By Memorial Day, 2007, over 300 USPS R2-D2-decorated mailboxes will deployed in several dozen cities. This is ironic for two reasons: 1) R2-D2 has no hands, so unless all your mail is formatted as a grainy blue-toned hologram, everyone's favorite astromech droid is going to be precious little help. 2) The mail doesn't run on Memorial Day.
