USPS to cut Saturday delivery of mail to save $2 billion


In an attempt to save itself, Postmaster General Patrick R. Donahoe announced that Saturday mail delivery will cease. Only packages will be delivered Saturday. The cut in service should save the struggling USPS $2 billion a year.

Donahoe made the announcement yesterday.

As the late Sen. C. Everett Dirksen quipped, “a billion here and a billion there, soon adds up to real money.”
