    Getting rid of the subsidies will only do one thing, raise the price
    of mail three or four times the current cost. Do you want to send a
    letter to your friend across town for a dollar? or five? No where else
    in the world does the price of a first class letter cost under 50
    cents and go as far.

    There is no doubt that for the "good" of the country some enties need to be
    subsidized however that was not the orignal argument.

    The post office does that and still looses money. LOL

    : As near as I can tell, the only reason the USPS still exists is because
    : there are a group of people (over 70 years old) who do not own computers,
    : and these poor souls still have to send letters by first class mail. But
    : these are fast disappearing, and in another ten years of so, 95% or more
    : of the population will own and use computers, and send all of their
    : correspondence with them. In my opinion, the sooner the USPS leaves the
    : scene the better, since they are the ones responsible for cutting down the
    : rain forests in order to create junk mail, and this is killing the planet,
    : as well as choking my garbage trucks with paper.

    Your sneering putdown of people over 70 is offensive. I'll be 72 next week,
    and it's very likely that I know more about computers than you.

    I'm drowning in junk mail too, and I dislike it as much as you do. But most
    paper is made from trees grown as a crop, like corn or pumpkins, not from rain
    forests. My guess is that you knew that, but ignored that inconvenient truth
    because it didn't support your screed.
