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?
