The USPS provides a government service just like any other department — not sure why we should expect it to break-even or turn a profit any more than, say,  the Army or the National Weather Service or any other department ...

I was talking about how great a song Jolene is on an article here the other day and someone responded that Dolly is one of the only people who could unite this country. This just reinforces that. Good on her, her national treasure status remains stable.
