Postal Service Wants to Cut a Day

News that the Postmaster General is considering petitioning Congress to eliminate one day of service per week as a money saving measure. Although at some level of abstraction I find this unsatisfactory, the more I think of it, the more sense it makes. Let's face it; if you're reading this blog, it is unlikely that you get very much in the regular US mail that is important to your life anyway. Wired folks get their bills on line, and besides, when's the last time you wrote a real live letter to anyone? Eliminating Saturday delivery seems to make the most sense to me. Old timers will tell you that they used to receive mail several times a day!

But you could be the postman...

A postman, hmmmm ...

Oh, the postman always brings the mail
Through rain or snow or sleet or hail
I'll work and work the whole day through (but not Saturday, not Saturday)
To get your letters safe to you


'Cause a postman is a person in your neighborhood
In your neighborhood
He's in your neighborhood
A postman is a person in your neighborhood
A person that you meet each day except on Saturday except on Saturday because of budget pressure budget pressure

I believe they are thinking of cutting out Tuesdays because it's a slow day.
