USPS Wants To Stop Saturday Service

Would you miss it?

The United States Postal Service wants to chop a day from its delivery schedule.  The postmaster general is asking Congress for permission to stop delivering mail on Saturday. 

The USPS has been fighting red ink on its books for years.  It's incremental increases in postage have not been enough to cover the costs of running the Postal Service in an era where people send more emails than actual mail.  In fact, people have come to calling letters "snail mail." 

I don't know about you, but the majority of mail I get ends up in my recycle bin or going through the shredder than anything else.  Certainly not everything, but the majority of it.  

Would you miss the mail on Saturdays if Congress agrees to do away with it?
