    >(T)here goes that company and sponsorship in the postal squad. < writes "JTN"
    of Weisel's company being investigated.

    Here is another tip off to what may be the abandonment by the postal service of its sponsorship. A
    few weeks ago Bush called for a review leading to an overhaul of the postal system. The blue
    ribbon committee is to present its recommendations at the end of July (coincident with the end of
    the Tour).

    The Federal government doesn't have much to do with the Postal Service sponsorship of the bike team.
    The government only puts a tiny amount of money in the postal system, except for extreme
    circumstances (like the anthrax incident last year). Financially, it is almost completely
    independent.
