Like many close observers of the shipping business, I know a secret about the federal government's relationship with Amazon: The U.S. Postal Service delivers the company's boxes well below its own costs.

Because the USPS is a government-funded charity with Amazon as the beneficiary? Because Bezos secretly owns the Post Office? Because Putin? Because ISIS? Is there any basis for this claim, or do we just have to accept it based on some random blogger's say-so?

Sheesh, what did they think would happen with an umbrella-sharing service?
