    I’m going to email this to a friend who delivers mail.

    Not one of Jorensen’s best (but I’ve only been reading her ’toons a short while).
    Why has she chosen to label the robot 3 different names in 3 different frames? Robot images from the ’50s era, the computext/space-gothic font from the ’60s…
    Nice touch with the dog chewing metal but meh.

    I am a retired Postal Worker and live in a rural area. I’m afraid privatization would eliminate mail delivery for me. I’m just too far out to make delivery economical. A central mail pick-up point would make more sense to a for-profit company and a real hardship on the American public.

    Millions of Americans are in similar situations.

    Unions saved the USPS. Junk mail wounded it. E-mail killed it.

    @omQ Release the Desaparecidos

    The game “Doom” used to have a devastating weapon called the “BFG 9000”. You can guess what the “BFG” stands for. I don’t know about the 9500. GeForce used to have a video card called BFG9500 (I think).

    “Junk mail” it is but the P.O. calls it “bulk mail” and it generates revenue. E-mail is the killer.

    Mail will join the list of things that used to be home delivered:
    Ice, Milk, Bakery Goods, Ice Cream … what else?

    You can post a cartoon strip on Sherpa for $10 a month.

    Yes Unionism is great but that isn’t the problem. It is the Congress forcing the postal company to pay $5 billion dollars a year for funding their retirement for 75 years. No other company has to do that. Why they are losing money.

    @Night-Gaunt49

    Thank you for paying attention to the actual reason the Postal Service is in such dire financial straits. Being forced to put aside money for the benefits of people who haven’t even been born yet is the height of Congressional stupidity.

    Yeah, but Republicans in Congress that forced the USPS to pay up 75 years worth of pensions over 10 might not have been a good thing.

    I have a clip of one of those vacuums that makes a mess when left alone with a dog.
