Yeah, nowadays economics is really driving these issues.
Guess we need to make certain we can live with a much smaller (infrastructurally) or non existent USPS before we start lopping inches off the tail of the dog.

My own opinion is that we have to maintain a viable postal service, for about a hundred reasons which I won't bore the shit out of you here...
