Quote of the Day
For years, I've had a hankering for the portrait of Benjamin Franklin by Joseph Duplessis. Franklin is credited with so many inventions: the postal system, lightning rods, the constitution. He was a rock star before there was such a thing.

More than an actor, I am a performer... I'm a great believer - honestly so, shamelessly so, vulgarly so - that cinema is for entertainment. If you want to send messages, there's the postal service.
I'm always mystified by the day-to-day workings of entities like Twitter that provide framework but not content, but I suppose it could be compared to the U.S. Postal Service, which manages to keep a lot of people employed doing lots of stuff other than writing letters.
The Postal Service's unmatched ability to reach every household and business in America six days a week is a vital part of the nation's infrastructure.
The Internet creates as well as destroys. Social networks, search advertising, and cloud computing are multibillion dollar industries that didn't exist 10 years ago. They are products of the same force that has rendered the Postal Service's core business obsolete.
We get information in the mail, the regular postal mail, encrypted or not, vet it like a regular news organization, format it - which is sometimes something that's quite hard to do, when you're talking about giant databases of information - release it to the public and then defend ourselves against the inevitable legal and political attacks.
The federal government spends millions to run the Postal Service. I could lose your mail for half of that.
The Postal Service is a vitally important institution for the American people. It must be saved.
In last year's local elections in Manchester a third of those who voted did so by post. It's not just that people are choosing to get postal votes, but having one makes it much more likely that they'll vote.
The Postal Service delivers mail six days a week to nearly 140 million addresses. Every year this number increases by 2 million.
As a result of the digital age and the decline of first-class mail, there is no question that the Postal Service must change and develop a new business model.
Postal service of today is far removed from that of 30 years ago when reform was last enacted.

The United States Postal Service is the world's most efficient postal system.
My favourite game is Postal because it is so politically incorrect.
I would rather propose a bureau somewhat similar to that which we have in the Universal Postal Union.
But the fact is, Mr. Chairman, for all the challenges the Postal Service of the 21st century faces, it still retains its traditional place as a key cog in how American businesses conduct their affairs and how Americans all across this land communicate.

The second 'Postal Service' album is threatening to become the 'Chinese Democracy' of indie rock. It will come out eventually, or maybe it won't.
Americans have an expectation that the Postal Service will abide by its well-known, although unofficial, motto - a commitment to deliver.
I had an uncle who was a postal official at the Polish post office in Gdansk. He was one of the defenders of the Polish postal service and, after it capitulated, was shot by the Germans under the provisions of martial law. Suddenly he was no longer a member of the family, and we were no longer allowed to play with his children.
The ghastly thing about postal strikes is that after they are over, the service returns to normal.
Richard J. Needham
There's some kind of dark symbiosis between lunatics and the Postal Service.
Now that this legislation has passed the House, I look forward to the vote in the Senate that will bring us to Conference, where we can resolve any outstanding issues and make this postal reform reality - for the Postal Service and for all Americans.
I thought Paulie could jump. I know he's not fleet of foot, but at least have some hops. I guess we know who is not going to win a gold glove. I was trying to become a spokesperson for the U.S. Postal Service.
