Real postage rates

Stupid AP graphics strike again. This time I'm not even the only one to notice; their misuse of the word "real" with respect to time-adjusted costs is addressed on the Language Log.

It is kind of neat, though, that although we read none of the same papers, we were able to see the exact same graphic and complain about it in just the same way...
