I've heard of the idea of stopping Saturday delivery but if the American Postal Workers Union has it's way we may lose the US Mail altogether. A sign of the times, I guess. :(

they are also talking about closing the smaller offices in the more rural areas. Which means people will have to travel further for mail service...

My husband & I are in our 50s. We remember when Saturday delivery was a new thing. The mail used to come five days a week. We could go back to that schedule painlessly, I think.

I'm neutral on this; I use the 'net for everything except Christmas cards.

My grandpa showed me the newspapers about "No more mails!" I got mad so I hope they will not close the post office! :twisted: But, what about the shipping package and box from UPS and FedEx? :?

Mailing advertisements, bills, and regular mail will slow to an eventual stop. In fifty years everyone will have a computer, young and old. The Net will be the new post office, aside from things ordered online.

What about the movies from NetFlix? RedBox? Other movie companies? I really don't like to go over the post office to pick them up! :evil:
