440px Small USPS Truck

I just saw something I never expected to see again: a mailman delivering a big heavy box to my doorstep on a Sunday afternoon. Seems Amazon has started using the USPS for big box deliveries seven days a week, at least here in California.

I’m hoping this marks a revitalization of the USPS who since 1775 have been doing their neither snow nor rain nor heat nor gloom of night delivery thing but in recent years has become a fading¬†anachronism in the digital age.

Now, if the USPS wanted to pick up some easy change, they’d start selling a sticker you could put on your mailbox telling the carrier to filter out those crappy paper spam advertiser circulars.
