I have been reading about the Postal Service’s fiscal problems, but not one person has mentioned junk mail, which the post office charges very little for. I believe it’s time the post office raised the prices for all of the trash I see in barrels near my mailbox. May I also suggest that perhaps it should charge each mailbox recipient $5 per year to lower their immense burden — that would bankrupt no one. I believe it’s feasible and about time we start taking our mail delivery seriously.
