    parts of the PO - package delivery, etc, there are the PO's themselves.  

    Senator Feinstein's hubby, Richard Blum and CB ELLIS, have been charged with valuing the real estate holdings of the PO, including prime real estate in every major city.  

    Last year, the Postal Service hired real-estate firm CB Richard Ellis Group to advise it on putting postal real estate on the market and to represent the USPS in those sales. The available buildings and land parcels are listed on, with sticker prices as high as $17 million (some large buildings, such as a 17-story, 700,000-square-foot facility, do not list asking prices). A USPS spokesman said it has raised $120 million since the beginning of October through the sale of 30 properties, and currently has nearly 100 more, worth a total of about $252 million that it plans to sell in the next year and a half.

    It is all incestuous.  The people supposedly working for us are lining their own pockets and let the country be damned.  They are selling off our birthrite for a bowl of porridge.
