I sent a book from Massachusetts to Texas, with delivery confirmation, and the DC events show a very strange route from here to there. First it went to Jersey City, NJ and stayed there for a few days, then came back to Springfield, MA and rolled around there for a while before finally making it to Texas. So the book went MA->NJ->MA->TX. What's up with that?

Was it Media Mail? MM tends to take "vacations" en route.
