I mailed a book package media mail this morning and put PBS DC on it. In checking the USPS website for the DC number, here's what usps.com says:

Your Label Number
Status of Your Item
Date & Time


First-Class Mail®

Electronic Shipping Info Received

March 19, 2012


Delivery Confirmation

(Shift the contents of the bottom boxes to the left to be under their proper heading -- couldn't figure out how to format that)

I was super confused, since the label printed out media mail (I double checked this afternoon by re-printing), and I applied media mail postage. This shouldn't arrive postage due for the requestor, should it?
