No mail on Saturday

The U.S. Postal Service plans to stop delivering letters and other first-class mail on Saturdays, beginning August 1, although packages will continue to be delivered.

Tired of waiting for Congress to help, the Postal Service later today is expected to unveil a series of more drastic cuts it plans to pursue that will save billions of dollars, a representative for the service said.

It's unclear at the moment how the Postal Service has the authority to quit delivering letters on Saturdays. Previously, it has said it needed Congress to change the current law to do so. However, two sources confirmed to CNN that the plan includes an end to Saturday mail service except for package delivery, which has seen growth in the past few years.

How will this help that much all the same trucks will have to roll to get those packages delivered.
It may be able to cut a few jobs.

We can all do without mail for one day. Mail delivery persons deserve a two day weekend as most Americans get.

It should have been done a long time ago. We don't need any kind of deliveries on saturday or sunday. I do believe the post office itself should be open at least half day on saturday or extended hours during the week. That way those that work can get to the post office if they need to.
