I think its safe to say that the current us postal service is going to be failing pretty shortly with its need to deliver mail to almost every house in the country when half of the mail now is just junk anyway.

Did you know that the USPS isn't liable for delays due to an act of God? I just thought it was funny coming from a Government run service...
