- Said mail was fetched from the box by the carrier around 2:00 pm on 04-16-07
- Said mail was actually postmarked at 1:55:05 on APRIL FARGIN 17th
This is why the Post Office is doomed to extinction. And Postmaster General John Potter knows it....
I do not believe any law, however well intended, can repair [our] broken model, because mail volume is no longer growing at a rate sufficient to sustain the ever-expanding delivery network
Big. Surprise. There. Mail volume is no longer growing because anyone who can do so uses email or an overnight delivery service to do the job that the Post Office simply won't or cannot do.
