    This is getting kind of silly. My mail box is already full of junk mail. Are they going to install a bigger mail box, or just back a dump truck up and dump it by the yard full?

    Silly.

    Then you willing to pay $0.50 , $0.75 to mail a letter?
    In 2007 213 billion pieces of mail was handled by USPS.
    If price of letter went to $0.75 on the above pieces: $159 billion or $70 billion more!

    When will the post office start being a healthcare provider? I have always wanted junk body parts deposited in my mail box.

    They call it 'snail mail' for a reason.
