Yesterday, NPR reported an announcement by the U.S. Postal Service that it will implement ZIP Code Portability. Similar to the FCC's recently-introduced phone-number portability, whereby someone switching from line service to cell-phone service, or from one cellular provider to another, can retain their current telephone number, Zip Code Portability will allow people who move anywhere within the U.S. to retain their same ZIP+4 Codes (if desired). So those who manage to achieve some prestigious ZIP Code like 90210, or certain codes in Manhattan, for example, may continue to use those prestigious codes even after a change in fortunes forces them to move to some less-desirable area.

It seemed to me that April Fools content was much more prevalent this year.
Maybe it was me just paying closer attention.
