Recently, Bloomberg Business week featured an article, "The End of Mail." Postmaster General, Patrick Donahoe, took exception. Not a surprise. What else could he do?
I did find a couple of his quotes quite interesting, but not convincing.
"...advertising mail [aka junk mail] is what helps make the Postal Service core to a trillion-dollar mailing industry that employs more than 8 million people and drives our nation's commerce."
"With the right legislation, the Postal Service can return to profitability and continue to deliver value, convenience, and innovation to American businesses and residences for generations to come." http://amplify.com/u/a1618s
