We Don't Deliver For You

In order to survive, the Post Office must have a business model that is relevant:

Everyone knows that the real problem for the Post Office is the reality that the institution-one of the few government offices whose creation was authorized in the Constitution (Article I, Section 8, Paragraph 7) has failed to adapt to the realities of the 21st Century. From colonial times right up to the late 1990's, the majority of long-distance communication in America was done by means of letters sent in the post. Not only has the widespread availability of internet access allowed people to send letters via e-mail, but long distance communication has become cheaper and easier in general. Most wireless telephone providers offer free long distance, and to compete, many land-line phone carriers offer unlimited long distance plans. You don't even have to have internet access at home to send an e-mail-You can do that from your local library for nothing.
