    This costs very American citizen $0.79 per day. A single first class letter (domestic) is ~$0.45, so every person in the U.S. should just send 2 letters per day that they would otherwise send as emails icon_razz.gif Maybe 3 just for those who don't use email icon_razz.gif

    "Neither snow nor rain nor heat nor gloom of night stays these couriers from the swift completion of their appointed rounds."

    Perhaps a missing paycheque?

    They need to stop delivering junk mail at bulk rates. If those companies want to mail crap to every household in America, make them pay for it. It would stop lickety split and we could downsize the USPS.

    And what's this horsecrap of giving incentives to retire? Lay people off if you dont need them.
