It has come up before, and the latest push to end Saturday mail delivery has the backing of President Obama himself.
The president's recent proposal, which was widely reported, comes as pressure mounts on Congress to pass legislation overhauling the Postal Service. The agency announced recently that it lost $3.3 billion in its most recent quarter, much of it due to a payment to prefund retiree health benefits.
The agency has become another casualty of technology. More and more, people are communicating by email, text messaging or social networks. Of course, bill paying by the Internet and shopping via mobile devices also is common.
But it's more than just cost savings. "Getting the mail" is a lifestyle matter, too. People chat "at the mailbox."
