Oh Shit, That's Today?

Tarrant County folks planning on filing 11th hour taxes tonight: The post office in downtown Fort Worth will be closed for construction. Instead, go to those at 3701 Altamesa Blvd. or 4600 Mark IV Parkway.

Sure, the Fort Worth Startle Gram relates this valuable info to you in a story today, but they don't get to the point (P.O.'s closed, go elsewhere) for about 143 words into the thing. I'm thinking that if you're desperately searching for a post office at 11:45 tonight, you probably won't have 143 words worth of time to read about where to find one, however appreciative you may be of the clever lead. --Andrea Grimes
