The changes in the last 20 years, and future changes will make it necessary for the USPS to become more efficient.

I mean, take me for example. I probably get 10% as much mail as I did as compared to just 10 years ago. I receive and pay bills online, receive all of my statements online.....just about everything comes via my email account. I would say I get a piece of mail once a week, maybe once every 2 weeks....MAX.

The processing machines are getting faster with less breakdowns.

I think the USPS does a great job............but, they are going to have to make BIG changes to survive.

If the Post Office can make more junk mail work for them, more power to them. Years ago the PO was told to operate more like business. What could be more business-like than increasing your sales?
