The U.S. Postal Service Nears Collapse

BusinessWeek on the End of Mail.  Honestly, I can’t wait for the USPS to collapse.  It’s a garbage delivery service as far as I can tell, and it sounds like virtually all of their plans for pulling out of the dive are related to serving that industry better.  FedEx and UPS kill them on parcels, and real, personal mail is so rare these days I don’t think I’d even notice if it vanished.

I use the USPS for Netflix and bills that can’t be paid electronically. In addition, I generally prefer USPS for parcels over UPS and FedEx because they are faster and cheaper, and the mail man doesn’t drop $500 cameras over our fence. However, I agree that the garbage is a major problem and that an organization whose business depends on it probably needs to go.
