…today, when junk mail is predominant, “postal management is unable to articulate a compelling vision of the public good,”…
Quote attributed to Richard R. John, a historian at Columbia Univeristy Graduate School of Journalism.
While I continue to subscribe to paper magazines, send and receive zillions of packages via Etsy and other online shops, and even maintain relationships via written correspondence, I have to wonder the status of the postal service. So much of the bulk of materials send via the postal service doesn’t really qualify as serving the “public good,” does it?
