Feb 6th 2013 Financial Insecurity
It looks as if they’re finally going to do it. The U.S. Postal Service has announced that it will stop delivering mail on Saturday. If I understand it, the USPS still will deliver packages six days a week, and mail will continue to drop in PO boxes on Saturday morning. I guess that’s OK with me, but then I have a PO box. I like the USPS. I think it does a fine job and does not receive enough respect. Maybe my feelings go all the way back to when I was a little boy, and our mailman would walk his route, climbing the many steps to our front-door mail box with a huge leather pouch over his shoulder. I’ll have to admit, you can’t expect that kind of serice anymore.
