Newspaper turns to USPS for delivery

The Junction City (KS) Daily Union laid off more than 30 news carriers. The cost of home delivery was just too much.

Like many other papers, the Daily Union is struggling financially. But in order to continue publication, they will mail the newspaper to subscribers.

Of course, back in my day, that's why the Post Office was so important -- to make sure that the free expression of ideas, the latest independent thought, all the news and most important, the cookie recipe of the week could be sent uncensored and unfiltered to the public.

Now, we've come full circle. The Post Office and the newspaper...a perfect match! What do you think?
