I once tried to figure out how commercial Parcel rates are calculated when items are taken to Bulk Mail Center (BMC) and Auxiliary Service Facilities (ASFs). These are the mail sorting
centers Congress wants to shut down to "save money". The
Congressmen shutting them down want to help us "save the Postal System from financial
collapse." When a facility is closed down, employees are thrown out of work, and the postal executives get a bonus (society rewards them for good leadership). Once enough
of the sorting centers are gone, the Post Office will never again be
able to deliver
first class mail by the next day. Delivering an ordinary envelope
the next day and "overnight delivery" from corporations like
FedEx are not much different, except that one costs $21.05 to $36.05
