    I just think there's not enough dialog going on.  Postal workers could be trained on a whole new things to keep up with what's going on in the market.  Job training is something to consider and I don't think a single postal worker will object to doing so.  Not a single auto worker seems to object to learning new skills so long as they don't get laid off.

    The problem is, the headlines are always, "U.S. Postal Service cuts Saturday Delivery" instead of "U.S. Postal Service Trains Postal Workers on new IT Technology."

    I mean, there's not enough three-dimensional thinking here (or as Doc Brown from Back to the Future would say, "Marty, you're not thinking fourth dimensionally!").

    The truth is, there are still businesses that depend on Saturday delivery.  When you cut down the delivery, basically, you're thinking purely in austerity and draconian measures, not real outreach or town hall meetings.

    And since Darrell Issa is one who helped manufacture this crisis in the first place, he's the one whose feet needs to be held to the fire.
