24. just imagine the mail experience for those in the hurricane recovery
areas - along the MS Gulf Coast, they have cut hours at most post offices with only one in each city staying open 8 to 5 five days a week (only open Sat 3 hours) - they haven't replaced most of those that retired and the carriers are overworked - NOLA was a major hub - since the storm they have tried to reallocate the deliveries and mail to NOLA can take longer than it once did.

Out of necessity we have had to rely on the other private mailing corps. Hell, even the feds rely on them over the USPS.

I would venture to guess that a thorough investigation into bushco's USPS administrative operations would show the efforts to harm the unions and make them inconsequential along with the buying of junk from private corps to sell at the USPC (they have junk in the post offices, bears and plastic scales, etc). Privatization was the goal and that required destroying what was working.
