Aaron has some additional

thoughts on the “close the post office” idea that John Robb floated the other day. Basically right on target.

In other news, I hate it when people change the facts in a post without making a note about it. Robb changed the number of employees at the USPS from 300K to 990K, but didn’t acknowledge the initial error, which I reproduced below.

But the fundamental point I made is still valid: people assume that post office operations aren’t automated and must be very old school. Those people make a drastically incorrect assumption.
