    Is anyone really going to miss Saturday letter delivery? The volume of mail is way down from even a few years ago. How much of that mail requires Saturday service?

    Packages will still be delivered on Saturdays, so lma can still get the Star Wars action figures he bought on eBay.

    Our mail service could be improved, but compared to the rest of the world, the USPS does well:

    @Ms. Ima

    You should be applauding this move. The USPS is saving $2 billion a year by cutting unnecessary service.

    @Uncle Joe

    I agree with you there Saturday service should have ended years ago.

    The pathetic part of this post, other than the obvious reference to the post office, is the slovenly appearance of the morbidly obese duo in the cartoon. I don’t believe in the government dictating diet, but I share Mrs. O’s concern for the overweight, pre-diabetic condition of so many of America’s youth. Kids in middle school are being given “statin” drugs to lower their cholesterol because their diets are so bad and they don’t exercise enough. Our affluent society is raising a generation of obese children that will be living on pharmaceuticals early in life to control diabetes, high blood pressure and high cholesterol.

    This is an honest comment on America’s Obesity. We start them out young with bad habits. Bad food and when they are all wound up on sugar for so long we wonder why the kids can’t calm down, so we put them on ritalin.

    It would be alright if it helped the USPS, but it won’t, at least not for long. They will have to cut even more. Maybe they topple over and “Third World America” becomes a reality…

    -

    Postal Service (of any kind) was invented in Germany (two dukes named Thurn and Taxis, the later also being the namesake of the common taxi). Since then none, not one, postal service in the whole world has collapsed, not even in Zimbabwe. I agree that times have changed (e-mail) and that paper is on the decline generally (newspapers…) but still: does the U.S. really wants to lead in that category and set an example? You brought stamps to the moon and the moon (and Apollo) was on your stamps…

    -

    BTW: The last moonwalkers are dying. Children born today will have nobody alive to look up to. Learning it from books is not the same. Get your economy back in order and then go Mars-crazy, you need the mental and emotional bump…

    No problem, get my mail at a PO Box qtr mile up the road, exercise and the dog dumps on the way.

    When we finally get around to a Mars mission, I hope to see an international agency including our close allies. No reason for the US to bear the entire cost or reap all the benefits.

    The EU nations, Japan, South Korea & Australia should be our partners in space.

    “Our affluent society is raising a generation of obese children that will be living on pharmaceuticals early in life to control diabetes, high blood pressure and high cholesterol.”

    Agreed. No doubt. Unfortunately, the costs involved will be attributed more to Mr. Obama than to the people who could have avoided these conditions with proper diet and exercise.

    Sometimes, we have to look in the mirror.

    They started Saturday deliveries only 35 or 40 years ago (after 200 years or so of getting by without); I think they complained then too.
    I hate to say it, but haven’t they simply thought of raising the price? Are they unaware of how a monopoly can work?

    I suggest you visit One ADD place and find out exactly how ADD can happen.

    And for the record – Ritalin never did anything for me except turning me into a robot.
