It's official (-ish; there's a press conference slated for later this morning). The U.S.P.S. will cut Saturday Delivery of letters and mail starting in August. They anticipate saving about 2 billion dollars with this cut in service.
DON'T PANIC! Packages will still be delivered on Saturdays, and we still have our 5 days a week of mail. Plus, perhaps here's a reason to look forward to Mondays as my friend Chandra pointed out. This article at the Washington Post has a good run down on why the delivery cut back is warranted and also the ongoing fight between the U.S.P.S. and Congress.
How about you, mail lovers? How are you feeling about this announcement? My sources seem to feel resigned about it and hope that it leads to improved service on the weekdays. What would you do to "save" the Post Office?
