Today's "Buggy Whip Maker"
That's the Post Office. It's going out of style, with e-mail making the inroads it has made in private message traffic, coupled with the massive increases in the cost of sending a single letter. I wouldn't THINK of sending a letter today if there were ANY possibility of corresponding by e-mail. My own brother lost his computer and has refused to get another one, even though the cost to buy one has come down tremendously. I haven't been in contact with him since. E-mail has become THE method of communication, today. The Post Office can't understand that, and they just keep raising the cost to send a letter sky high, so people can no longer afford to send a letter. Like the “buggy whip makers” of yore,they think they can survive in a world where people no longer send letters. They think just raising prices will make the difference. It will, but not in the way they think. They'll keep thinking that way until ALL their business dries up. (Just common sense)
