Maggie, my question is this, if they are going to deliver "packages", how will they justify their costs for manpower, fuel, etc for going out and delivering packages all over their particular service area? If they can deliver packages, why not just carry the mail as well? Does my question make any sense to you?

Makes perfect sense to me! There was absolutely no reason why they were running Saturdays anyway. I honestly don't see why they don't just cut back and run 3-4 days a week. 90% of the junk you get in the mail is garbage anyway.

This is all well and good but I've noticed the mail is barely delivered to my house. I was getting mail at my old address every say. Now I'm lucky if I get anything once a week. I filled out the mail forward papers and still barely anything.
