The price of 'Forever' stamps just went up
1.28.2019 - CNN reports: "It just got more expensive to send mail. The price of a "Forever" stamp has gone up a nickel -- to 55 cents.

The FSS Slows, and the Red Ink Flows
1.06.2019 - Dead Tree Edition reports: "For the third year in a row, productivity of the U.S. Postal Service's Flats Sequencing System declined in 2018 - with no end in sight to the money-losing machines' troubles. Hourly throughputs declined 5% during Fiscal Year 2018 and are 14% below where they were five years ago, the USPS reported recently in its Annual Compliance Report. Leakage - the proportion of mail that was supposed to be run on FSS machines but wasn't - rose from 20.1% to 21.9%." - Comments (Count)

Trump Administration Proposes Major Overhaul of USPS
12.04.2018 - Washington Examiner reports: "The Treasury Department issued a report Tuesday calling the U.S. Postal Service "unsustainable" financially and calling for extensive changes to its operations.
