| Newton MA News and Politics BlogA widely reported story yesterday described how six men were arrested outside the Newtonville Post Office while “mail fishing”

I just learned with this story that “mail fishing” is a thing – i.e. dropping lines with something sticky into a mailbox to pull out the mail.

My biggest question here is “How many mail fishermen does it take to rob a mailbox”?¬† In this case six people were arrested.¬† That sounds like some woefully inefficient¬† “fishermen” if it takes six of them to knock off a single mailbox.
