There’s a lot to think about in relation to the US Postal Services, these days. As someone who operates a business that depends on the ability to mail books, I’m pretty keen on keeping up with what’s happening to this mixed bag of an institution. I LOVE mail– And I love the post office! I’m a dedicated poster. But there’s still a lot to be desired. I’ve had share of experiences with lost/damaged packages, rude employees, painfully expensive shipping rates, and totally insane and archaic policies. It’s exciting to imagine how things might change with a postal revamp, but also scary. I don’t want them to shut down offices, raise rates or become privatized, but I suppose progress marches on. I just have to hope that it marches someplace that still lets me drop a package in a box and expect it to soon be on the other side of the world.
