Meanwhile, at the Post Office...

Did you read where the Post Office is looking at cutting 220,000 jobs? That's 1/3rd of their work force!

That is one organization that has taken a body blow by social media. The Post Office was in trouble when we all started emailing and texting each other. Does anyone ever send a letter anymore? Most (if not all) banks now offer bill-paying services, too. Does anyone mail checks anymore? The internet also delivers news and media, reducing magazine and newspaper subscriptions.

It seems to me that the Post Office is reduced to delivering advertisements and credit card offers. Maybe some folks still receive a bill here or there.

The times have changed, and the Post Office is changing, too.
