No Saturday? Not enough

The U.S. Postal Services’ decision to end Saturday delivery of regular mail in August was an expected move. On the surface, it’s pitched as an absolute necessity to continuing the mail service on the other five days a week. It should be noted that Congress must still approve the move, but that is more than likely a formality at this point.

The USPS claims it will save $2 billion annually with the move. As a business decision, maybe this makes sense. However, because bureaucrats are involved in the implementation of the plan, my guess is this reduction in service will only continue to cannibalize our current postal system.
