Daily Mail Delivery In Peril – Does It Matter?07/27/2011
Cursive isn’t the only “relic” of a more primitive age that’s in peril. The United States Postal Service is a real money pit and overdue for reorganization. The digital age has taken its toll but so have other factors. As a remedy I favor privatization and expanded competition, unlikely solutions for now. Still something must be done.
To reduce losses, the USPS has floated a plan to cease Saturday delivers and eventually lower the number of delivery days to just three per week. People most affected by this scheme would be those dependent on the USPS for critical items like medicine, medical supplies or other survival related items. Setting aside that issue since other delivery services will continue to deliver, how might reduced postal service affect you? Does it even matter?
