Gosh. I've been using 'going postal' out here in California for about a

year and a half in my Intro classes. Fortunately (or not) I haven't been

made aware that I had any postal employees in my classes. Of course, it

would have been interesting to find out how postal employees feel about

the phrase, which kinda labels the whole barrel for a few bad apples who

bring a gun to work and go berserk. Almost all of my students in each

class had heard the phrase before when I mentioned it.

Did I miss the citations or "I've heard it" attestations for "going postal".

Who has it, or where? When?
