Until 1912, the United States Postal Service delivered mail on Sundays — and prior to 1950, the mailman came twice a day. Now, with the USPS expected to suffer a projected $238 billion deficit over the next decade, it looks like Saturday delivery may soon become a thing of the past too. Luckily, with the era of online bill pay, email, and other forms of electronic communication, most people won’t even notice.
The bottom line: Yes, the USPS may be undeterred by snow, rain, heat and the gloom of night — but it still needs to find a way to conquer those mountains of red ink.
