Tuesday is the lowest mail volume day, that is why they picked Tuesday and not Saturday.

I think both days are bad choices. Tuesday is an okay option, but there's one thing to think about: holidays, which is why I think Monday should be cut if need be. For one, many Mondays out of the year are no-mail days anyway because of National Holidays - why not just take out the day permanently? And, if they go with Tuesday to cut, and there's a national holiday, that means there will be no mail for 3 days in a row (Sunday, Monday, Tuesday).

I wouldn't do Saturday - at first I thought it was a good option. But, most people get their paychecks on Fridays. And what if they wanted to mail out a bill the next day? If Saturday was cut, they'd have to wait until Monday to do so.

Just a few things to point out. No matter what, I'd hate to see any day cut.

^ You've got a good point about Mondays. But, like you, I don't want to see any of the days being cut.

Well, I'm sorry if you and I will disagree on that.

I'm not saying I begrudge your family of their income. But there are too many overpaid positions IMO and if the USPS would seriously evaluate itself as if it were a private business, it would seek ways to stop the blood letting.

They wonder why the USPS is losing money - maybe it's because their prices are always rising. 44 cents for a stamp? No one wants to spend that just to mail out a letter when they have a computer and a cell phone at their hands.

Yes, it's like cutting off your nose to spite your face. I always remember this classic line from a 1975 episode of Barney Miller:

"Thirteen cents a stamp - I wouldn't write to anyone if my life depended on it!!" - Det. Phil Fish (Abe Vigoda)

I prefer the Postal Service sticking to six days of delivery. Then again, I work for the Postal Service at a Processing and Distribution Center (P&DC) and run the big machines that sort the mail. (I enjoy it! Really! Honest to God I do!)

I'm more for five cancellation days, as opposed to five delivery days, per week; since 2001 the place for which I work sends Saturday's cancellation mail to a neighboring facility (with the exception of mid-December because of all the Christmas mail) because of lower volume on weekends.

Jude, a cancellation day is a day on which mail goes through the P&DC and gets the cancellation mark (e. g. "DAYTON OH 454/2 FEB 2009" or "CINCINNATI OH 452/2 FEB 2009" which used to be a gray circle but is now a computerized "dot matrix" set of two lines with the city and date) printed over the postage stamp and sorted for delivery. Currently they run Monday-Saturday.
