Another Postage Rate Increase

Yep, another one, come this May. This after the last increase took place less than a year ago, according to the Santa Rosa Press- Democrat. I thought they'd just had a fairly recent increase. They really need to get some competition in that business.

Interesting about those new Forever stamps: They'll remain the same price until the price until the price increase, then they go up another penny, as well. Now I see how that works.

I think I'll buy a roll of the forever stamps. That should last forever as often as I use stamps nowadays.

Junk mail has kept the price of postage stamps down for years. The USPS is now making more money from 1st class than 3rd class. Advertisers are putting more $$ into internet campaigns. People are paying bills online or direct payment. Snail mail is likely to become a luxury item. It's similar to the death of payphones due to cell phones.

Keep up or be bleached bones left behind in the desert.

Do not rage against the machine...

Heed Jeff. It sounds like he knows what he's talking about.

Compare the price of postage with the price of your crappy health insurance plan. Perhaps the Postal Service should be in charge of health care.

Nah. I'd go for the DMV.
