Saturday Postal Service Going?

One of the proposals to reduce costs for the US Postal Service is to drop Saturday Deliveries.

I have mixed feelings on this.

As a business owner that sends a lot of products via the US Mail it's nice to have a Saturday delivery.

But, it would also be nice if the Post Office can stop increasing the postage fees! And going to a 5 day schedule instead of 6 day schedule would cut their costs.

The challenge for the USPS is the amount of mail being sent, including junk mail, is falling. People are paying their bills online, using E-Mail to send notes instead of through the mail, and UPS and FedEx are competing for them on packages. The USPS is also stuck with a lot of physical locations that some are under used, while others are too small (like the one in Rowland Heights where I live).
