There is big talk here about reducing costs for government run mail service. One option is closing 260 small post offices. Another possibility is cutting Saturday mail service.
Interestingly enough, people have strong opinions about this, and most everyone I talk to believes that 6 day a week mail service is vital. I see it differently. I think that we could save a huge amount of money by cutting mail delivery to every other day. One mail man could do two routes.
Let's face it. Most of what comes to me in the mail is junk mail. I believe that America as a whole simply believes that there are too many non-negotiables. The fact is, if we want to cut budgets, we are going to have to give up stuff. I don't understand why people are so resistant to change, yet demanding that budgets be cut.
Question for foreign readers: how often is your mail delivered?
