Postal service requires a U.S. address

OK - I live in New Mexico and have read about this happening to others before from numerous people, places, etc.

This morning I went to USPS to buy stamps, and have done so in the past with no problem.

But today I got a message after entering my usual Albuquerque, NM mailing address:
"The USPS requires a U.S. mailing address".

I got out of there and went back in, and was able to order using the same info on the second try.

Wish I'd taken a screen shot!

1. I remember prior to the Atlanta Olympics the reports of

New Mexico resident ticket seekers being told they needed to go to the INTERNATIONAL line.

Having spent time in nearly every US state, it is sad, but true that many never travel and truly know nothing about the rest of the country.

2. I like the NM license plates

We were just in NM and I noticed that the newer plates say "New Mexico USA"

3. ... I noticed that the newer plates say "New Mexico USA"

1969: The letters “USA” are added after the state name to help geography-challenged people in other states know where we’re from.
