        WASHINGTON — The post office is renewing its drive to drop Saturday delivery – and plans a rate increase – in an effort to fend off a projected $7 billion loss this year.

        Without drastic action the agency could face a cumulative loss of $238 billion over 10 years, Postmaster General John Potter said in releasing a series of consultant reports on agency operations and its outlook.

        "The projections going forward are not bright," Potter told reporters in a briefing. But, he added, "all is not lost ... we can right this ship.



        Hi Gang:
            In my opinoion, the postal service has been struggling for a while now.  Even with several rate increases, and now the possibility of no mail on Saturdays.

        What is next.......

        The next thing is to hike the cost of insurance for retirees...Or to put them on the govt plan or something. Plus reducing bennies for those now employed and such.

        But this was seen long ago when "E-Mail" started up. Basically the post office better start charging everyone (Except true charities) the going rate. Just because you mail off 1,000,000 catalogs, means you blew more to make them, then to send usually.

        I never agreed with that.

        The Post Office is a perfect example of WHY the Government shouldn't run anything.  (Hint, hint....Health Care!)

        Going to the Post Office is a joke.  Long lines and one person working the counter who has a "don't give a d...n" attitude.  To fire anyone from the Post Office is almost impossible because it is treated as a federal job for life.  At best, it is a type of work-force welfare.

        So.....let's end Saturday mail and privatize what we can.

        I lived in Cabool, MO and the locals (Anyone in a 2 miles radius of the post office) HAD to have a PO box as they'd not deliver locally. Only to outliying houses.

        Exactly Doc, another prime example of a govt. run failure.

        Tyes....you are so right on.  If ANYONE wants a good example of why the government is INcapable of anything, just look at the Post Office.
