I went to my mailbox today, as I do every day, only to find a pile of "snail mail spam". You know, solicitations from charities, shopping circulars
and coupons. I do all of my banking through the internet and all of my friends e-mail me as opposed to writing letters. Heck, I don't even get
post-cards from my friends who travel. If the internet can replace the postal service, why don't we? The thought of the mailman trudging his way
through rain and sleet and snow bringing unwanted printed matter seems to be such a waste. Isn't it time to put an end to this dreadfully labor
intensive "service"? We could save forests of trees by putting a stop to the waste of all that paper. And we could help save lives by encouraging
all of those mind-numbed posties to find something "meaningful" to do with their lives.
