Snail Mail Could Get Even Slower

The US Postal Service needs to save billions of dollars to stay in business, and today it announced what that means: 25,000 jobs, 250 out of 460 mail-processing facilities and the end of next-day service. Postmaster General Patrick Donahue compared the situation to that of any other company affected by the Internet. But Congressman Peter DeFazio (D-OR) faulted Donahue for lacking imagination or initiative, and accused him of "proposing the death knell" for the USPS. Ed O'Keefe writes the Federal Eye blog for the Washington Post.
