    I’ve lived in a few countries. Not all that many have Saturday deliveries. The UK’s Royalmail ended ended 2nd letter deliveries on weekdays a few years back. Still deliver on Saturdays though; for now.

    /facepalm … was reading it as a letter (a b c …), and was thinking “they can´t be that dumb?”.

    Scan text and a voice synthesis speaks the words.
    Speak the words and voice recognition writes the text.
    “What’s a letter?” is not that far away.
    Conji based writing functions well other than needing 3000 key keyboards.
    And when keyboards are gone so will the shortcomings of not having letters.
    Letters will be internal to computers and words will no longer be broken down into parts.

    Is communication really necessary? Are interstate highways vitally important? Won’t local toll roads do? How’s about clean water and bacteria free food? Shouldn’t government just get out of the way and the fabled Free Market take over? Won’t we all be better off in the ‘long run?’

    Take all of those lame duck CONgressmen who voted to make the post office fund 75 years worth of pensions in 10 years, put them on a boat headed for Somalia.

    I think the post office has not gone far enough with quitting delivery on one day. Congress has the power to create a post office, not regulate delivery schedule, but delivery should be only to those that want letters and such. I have asked that a system be made to opt out of mail delivery to anyone that wishes to or has no need for anything but package delivery.

    @Colonel Claus

    Long before pi was a number pi was a letter. And it still is a letter. It comes just before rho.

    @Colonel Claus

    @Lonecat is right – pi is a letter in the Greek alphabet. Those of us in most of the rest of the world see it as equal to 3.14159 (and on to infinity).
