Postal workers are naturally concerned about job losses — as many as 22,500 carrier jobs could go. What about the job losses in the private sector because of changing market conditions? Congress doesn't ride to the rescue of those. Thousands of people were once employed to deliver telegrams. Not anymore.

Given the resistance in Congress to doing something fiscally responsible, Saturday first-class mail delivery will likely continue beyond its scheduled expiration in August. Sooner or later, though, six-day mail service will go the way of the telegram.
