In 2011, the post office is as dated as a Cliff Clavin reference.

The Postal Service isn’t going to shut down in a month. They might default on mandatory payments regarding retirees (long story), but they’re not going to go out of business anytime soon. It’s complicated, but Congress needs to get off its collective butt and revamp the mandates by which the USPS operates, mandates that don’t apply to any other business in the country.

Well put, DanH.
I hope the USPS survives and thrives. UPS, FedEx and the others are fine, but the USPS unites our country by delivering to EVERY address – even if using donkeys is required (believe it or not, still used in some areas).
Lots of people like to make fun of the USPS, but my mailings have never been lost or delayed. Typically, letters I send from Dlh to Mpls (44 cents, door to door), arrive overnight.
Use commemmorative stamps… and yes, Jimmy B., start a collection. There is a lot of history and knowledge to be learned from stamps – not just vintage baseball and Simpsons.

I have nothing but good things to say about the USPS, I hope they’re around for a long time to come.
