CNN Money reports that the US Postal Service is proposing to end next-day delivery of first class mail, in order to save costs by consolidating facilities.
"This isn't a change we're happy about," said Art Sackler, executive director of the National Postal Policy Council, a trade group for large mailers. "But if they don't cut somewhere and substantially, they're going to run out of cash next summer. It's one of the lesser evils."
Right now, customers on average receive mail the day after it was mailed, according the postal service. That may still happen, but a lot less frequently under the proposed rules, say the insiders who were briefed on the proposal.
Since Netflix has located DVD shipping centers near postal processing centers, the change will probably add an extra day at most for most customers.
How do you feel about waiting an extra day for your Netflix DVDs?
Thanks to Boris, Stephen, and everyone else that sent this in.
