The legendary Benjamin Franklin was America’s first postmaster general and it’s too bad we can’t bring him back to fix what has happened to his once-proud creation.

By the way, I’m reading good reviews about the streaming movie “Franklin” starring Michael Douglas. It focuses on Franklin’s role as our ambassador to France and how he persuaded the French to help us beat the Brits to become a sovereign nation.

But back to the USPS, which aptly rhymes with “mess”.

So, what do you do when you’re drowning in red ink, you spend hundreds of millions more on “Delivering for America”, by consolidating 19,000 delivery centers into new, larger and more centrally located sorting and delivery centers. Wow, six of them are already up and running.

But the biggest farce of all is the assurance from USPS that no local post offices will be closed or services reduced.
