The U.S. Postal Service, once our country's gold-plated standard of service and efficiency, is going the way of the Pony Express.
In response to staggering financial losses and decreasing mail use, officials want to reduce service to five days a week by eliminating Saturday delivery, make wide-sweeping cutbacks of personnel and close hundreds of post offices.
Let me see if I have this right: The supposed answer to competitive pressures is to cut back service and make your business even more irrelevant. Sounds like the prescription for disaster in the making.
