I keep seeing people talking about privatizing the USPS and comparing it to UPS/FedEx -- the problem with those comparisons is that UPS and FedEx don't deliver mail. I have a feeling that if you cut out all the 4th through 1st class non-package mail, the USPS would be pretty damned profitable; it's the sorting and delivery of thousands of irregular piles of paper that's a killer.

Well, that and the fact that the USPS is ludicrously cheap for what you get -- check out the comparison chart from earlier this year at Postal Sanity (http://postalsanity.com/2010/07/u-s-postal-rates-excel-in-international-comparison/).
