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? 🙂
