brandent: My simple plan for the Post Office.1. Jack up bulk rates. There's no need in 2012 for the US Government to be running an advertising firm. This will reduce volume of mail dramatically (and also revenue).2. Deliver 3 days per week to residences on a blue/gold route. i.e. blue=M,W,F and gold=T,Th,Sat.3. Any business wanting 5 day per week service pays a nominal monthly fee.4. Then close most of the post processing centers and post offices as most of the volume would be gone. Keep at least a main branch open for other services in each city.5. Set rates appropriately on First Class to meet the new funding requirement (that might be $2/letter).6. Encourage use of kiosk postal centers (there's one in the drug store near my house).
