Where We Live: Post Office Politics
What's The Future of The Postal Service?
If you want to mail a letter, it may be more difficult than ever to find one of those blue mailboxes to drop it into. In the last 20 years, more than 200,000 of them have been removed. Let’s face it, many of us correspond by email and even our bills can be paid online.
That proposal has drawn criticism from some, but others think it might be necessary. Today, Where We Live, we’ll be talking about the state of post offices and their future.
Does the postal service still serve a purpose? How – and how often - do you use it?
