The post office wants to dump Saturday delivery.
The U.S. Postal Service, facing a crushing budget deficit, unveiled a sweeping cost-cutting plan Tuesday that apparently includes elimination of Saturday deliveries.
Who was it that once said in response to the question…
“Show me one thing the government has done well”
…The Postal Service?
Tangent notwithstanding, this should be no surprise. The fact is people are mailing less, emailing more, and if they need something sent quickly and reliably…there are other options, and people are willing to pay for the privilege.
Drop Saturdays. Fine with me. Why don’t you drop Tuesday through Saturday while you’re at it.
…in fact, lose Monday too. I’m sick of shovelling the snow away from my mailbox so I can empty it into the recycle bin every day.
Daily delivery of the mail is overkill.
You want to send me something? Make it an email.
