    The Postal Service was in difficult financial straits for years, but the COVID-19 crisis has pushed it over the edge.

  3. If presidential hamberders are essential, the *United States Postal Service* should be considered essential.

    I get that it’s essential in the way of delivering things, but i fail to see how fedex or UPS isn’t better than the post office, aside from maybe infrastructure size.

    If the USPS went away, my junk mail would go away. I’d only ever have mail when it was something I actually wanted.
