Mailboxes - ay, there's the rub.
Larry was stopped by a post office vigilante this afternoon in a very price-y neighborhood, where the boys had been nefariously tucking their flyers between the mailbox flags and the mailboxes at the end of each driveway. Flashing his official post-office cop badge, this gentleman informed my husband that he was breaking the law by allowing flyers to be placed in what are apparently federally-regulated mail receptacles. It seems he stopped just short of handcuffing my husband and leading him away to prison in front of his wide-eyed children. Larry groveled and apologized and was let go with a stern warning, however, so our offspring didn't have to experience a real-life version of The Railway Children.
