Missouri post office goes pink

The Joplin, MO Globe reports, "If you have an aversion to the color pink, you might want to avoid the Pierce City post office this month."

October is Breast Cancer Awareness month so postal employees decorated the post office lobby with pink ribbons, pink teddy bears, and pink and white balloons. You can also get pink bagels, pink pins and pink emery boards according to an article by staff writer Wally Kennedy.

They're also selling lots of Breast Cancer Awareness stamps.
