Post Office in Trouble

The U.S. Postal Service lost $2.8 billion last year and will be in trouble this year if Congress doesn't step in. How about opening up first class mail to competition? FedEx, DHL, UPS, and however many other package delivery companies there are do a fine job. How about letting them, or anyone else, take a crack at first class mail? The Internet has taken a huge cut out of the Post Office's business and as people become ever more Internet savvy and postage increases, it will continue to decline.

Now granted, other first class mail delivery services wouldn't be as entertaining since I think UPS frowns upon its employees carrying weapons, but I'm sure we can find plenty of entertainment elsewhere.
