I am a right-wing, radical conservative, but I recognize the difference between the desirable and the possible. It would be nice to get rid of the Post Office, but it ain't happenin' folks.
Maybe in ten years when it is even more clear that e-mail totally obliterates the wordage mass that letters carry, we will be able to free ourselves from this archaic bueraucracy. Maybe, when Fox carries a graph that shows the theoretical amount of mail sent in human history, and the amount of e-mail sent, and then we will be free, but until then, I'm not going to get too bent out of shape about this.
There are more important issues, like, the War on the Islamofascists.
