Don't cut MY government

THE MAIL MUST GO THROUGH
  • THE MAIL MUST GO THROUGH
It is to laugh every time the Democrat-Gazette whips up a froth about the closing of a tiny postoffice in some dusty Arkansas crossroads.

On one page of this or another newspaper:

"Government is too big. Government spends too much. The Postal Service is woefully inefficient. What's wrong with this country?"

On another page:

"Close MY postoffice? Raise the cost of MY stamp? Stop MY Saturday deliveries? What's wrong with this country?"

We are a nation of hypocrites.
