It Sort Of Worked For The Buses
The Post Office's budget is falling short, so it responds appropriately: It threatens to close a pile of local offices.

Browsing the list, it looks like they would close pretty much all of the nearby ones. That should save a pile of money. Maybe not.

    About 1,750 people work for the Postal Service in the St. Louis area. Hughes said the closings would not entail layoffs.
Probably not.

I get it, though. I'm supposed to get into high dudgeon that they're going to close my local post offices and contact my Congressman to provide additional subsidy.

You know what? They're not closing the local FedEx Kinko's. So I will pass, and I'll insist that my vendors and friends and family will ship that way so I don't have to drive downtown to pick up packages.

To say Noggle, one first must be able to say the "Nah."
