The Postal Service: A service Americans should appreciate

A good deal of misinformation circulates about the U.S. Postal Service; some unfortunately contained in two Jan. 2 commentary pieces published on these pages. I appreciate the opportunity to provide some facts and context.

First, the broad picture. The Postal Service, which doesn’t use a dime of taxpayer money for its operations (by law it earns its revenue) provides Americans and their businesses with the industrial world’s most-affordable delivery network.

Based in the Constitution, USPS delivers to 155 million addresses six and even seven days a week, delivering 47 percent of the world’s mail. An average of 3,748 new addresses are added daily to the country’s only universal delivery network.
