Rural Areas Affected by No Saturday Mail

As the U.S. Postal Service continues to lose money by the bagful, the idea of dropping Saturday mail delivery is gaining momentum again. President Barack Obama endorsed the notion Monday as part of his economic growth and debt reduction plan. At the Danville post office Tuesday, Holly Henson reacted passionately to the possibility of losing Saturday mail service. “Sometimes, America just needs to hang on to its traditions,” Henson said. “Even if it doesn’t make financial sense, it makes common sense. It may be broken but don’t fix it.”
