The United States Postal Service needs some spare change.

The Financial Times tells us that we’re not buying enough stamps and because of this, the USPS is being ‘pushed towards’ insolvency. I didn’t know I was actively against the Post Office, we have a pretty good relationship in all. It is sad though if this country’s mail service is bankrupt. What kind of banana republic are we? Not the fashionable kind. Starting to look a little Old Navy up in this. I can only imagine if I have to send a simple letter through FedEx or UPS. Not going to happen. Maybe a whole new courier business will spring up form the ashes of the USPS but that’s just an optimistic libertarian assessment of a sad situation.
