Postage Stamp Rationing Followup

If you followed with interest our articles from August (here and here) about how the U.S. Postal Service has been rationing stamps, you may want to check out Meredith Jessup’s followup to it on the blog, and the comments to her post there.

I find amusing the people who — on the blog and elsewhere — complained that the real problem is that we wanted to buy 3,000 stamps in the first place.

C’mon, people! The post office makes its money by selling stamps. Plus, 3,000 letters is a miniscule amount of mail to the postal service.

As noted earlier, at least no one relies on the post office for health care.
