CBS' 60-Minutes commentator Andy Rooney had some things to say about the Postal Service last night.
He talked about the state of the Postal Service, proposed service cuts and the loss of traditional mail communication. He's prefers to get letters.
"An e-mail, on the other hand, has all the charm of a freight train. When I was growing up we all knew when the mailman was coming and we waited for him even though we hardly ever got a letter."
And Rooney gives props to our efficiency.
"In 1900, there were 77,000 post offices around the country. Today with four times as many people, there are only 37,000 post offices - 40,000 fewer post offices for 230 million more Americans."
And he concludes, "We have a lot of things that need cutting, but post offices are not among them."
His full comments are here. Tell me what you think here.
