America: First Class Mail, Third World Performance

A client apparently needs a new DC-in socket for his Sony laptop.
I ordered one from an Ebay dealer.  It wasn't until after I remitted payment
that I realized the source was in China.

"It will take too long to get here." I mused.  So I immediately ordered another from a dealer
in Texas at a very similar price.

I opened up today's mail - both parts arrived at the same time.  One from overseas,
and one from "only" about 2/3 of the way to the west coast of this formerly great nation.

Does anyone doubt we're heading in a very, very wrong direction?
