No More Saturday Mail?

It appears the U.S. Post Office will stop delivering regular mail on weekends later this year.

I’m not surprised. I expect to see them further and further contract. Although I hate to leave the business entirely to private enterprise, I’m not sure the postal service is relevant anymore. I can think of only one or two things I use it for, and if you took away my use of Netflix, that would be something I do maybe a half dozen times a year. Mostly, what’s in my mailbox is spam, just like my email.

On the other hand, these days I regularly talk to friends on three different continents and in at least four different countries, daily, for free. I like living in the future, don’t you? :-)

    Personally, I’d rather have them skip a day in the middle (Wed. or Thurs.) so that I don’t have a two day gap. I’m not often expecting anything, but when I am that will mean a 2 day gap :(

    One less day some guy comes ’round to my house and leaves a bunch of trash that I have to throw out.
