You’ve got mail (but not on Saturdays): USPS cutting back delivery schedule

The failing United States Postal Service will announce today that Saturday delivery of first-class mail will be eliminated in August for a predicted annual savings of $2 billion, a fraction of what the USPS lost in 2012.

Why does the postal service say it’s so cash-strapped? In the past, it’s been blamed on you darn kids and your Internets. (And also the recession, but mostly, get off the USPS’ lawn, whippersnappers.)

Packages will still be delivered on Saturdays.

Update:

Netflix customers are already making plans.

But some people are OK with the news.
