Amazon Con?

I ordered some stuff from Amazon on January 13. The total was more than $25, so of course I chose the "Super Saver Shipping" option, which I've used many times in the past. I realized yesterday that I hadn't received the shipment, or seen an email about a delay, so I checked my account and discovered that the expected shipping date is February 18-March 4, 2007, the estimated delivery date February 23-March 12.

Two months for delivery? What the hell is going on with that? Every other time I've used this shipping option, I've received my stuff within a couple weeks - not PDQ, but not s-l-o-w, either. When did demote Super Saver Shipping orders to steerage?
