The importance of communication

Congresswoman Patsy Mink thanks UPS drivers Rafael Corpuz and Robin Takiguchi for her new mascot and tells them how important their jobs are because of how dependent the nation is on communication. Following Sept. 11, Mink said, communication was virtually halted as postal service and parcel service couriers could not deliver mail and packages. Today, service has resumed, but mail takes at least a month to reach her office. Mink was one of the dignitaries on hand Monday morning for the dedication of the new UPS facility located adjacent to the Lihue Airport.
