The Mail Game
I note that we have on the table a proposal to reduce mail delivery. I had hoped when I voted for Mr. Obama things like this would change. Before cutting service to all of us and maybe affecting rural America disproportionately, could we not change past patterns and ask business to ante up? Why are there still two daily deliveries in some of our major cities? Why are we all subsidizing the “junk” mail industry? Why doesn’t anybody using the mails have to pay the same rate? “Junk” mail is to real mail at my house as at least 5 to 1. How about some real change! We may still have to cut back but it would be with the knowledge that we are all in it together.
