    ...that the pre-funding requirement is bad. The Navy, the SEC, and the DEA are not required to pre-fund, so why should the USPS?

    But six-day delivery is overkill. Mail should come 3 days per week. If something is so important that it can't wait another day, send it by e-mail.

    And I don't buy the image of elderly and rural people waiting expectantly by their mailboxes. Checks can be (and are) sent by direct deposit. A phone call to Grandma is cheaper than a letter.

    We need to change with the times.
