A friend of mine from South Dakota noted that the U.S. Postal Service delivered a lump of coal to many small towns last Christmas when it proceeded to eliminate overnight mail in most of the nation in 2015.
That was a good description. USPS will slow delivery by one day for first class and periodicals mail. Many members of Congress have asked it to hold off. But USPS is plowing ahead.
