People say that private services are better, but give me the post office! Why? The post office is cheaper for many items. People may complain about $2 jewelry shipping[it costs me $1.50 to pay the postage, and .50 cents is added since packaging isn't free], but if they paid fed ex or ups prices[$5 and up!], they'd be screaming for my blood! USPS also has media mail, which means I can ship books and DVDs for cheap, even if it takes a little bit more time. And the mail service helps me with the fact that I'm old school and prefer my netflix through the mail. People complain about the OMG GOVT running a postal service, but many private businesses rely on its reliability and cheap cost. The postal service is an important public good, and I'm all for it.
