The Interweb is whacking all the old mainstays as quick as it can. Newspapers are folding right and left, nightly newscasts on the networks are a relic at this point, (David Zurawik disagrees,) and now the US Post Office is seriously thinking about cutting Saturday mail delivery. The email effect, y’know. When was the last time you wrote a letter to someone?
(Don’t get me started on how our mail guys show up at all different times, and how we’re never here when there’s an eBay delivery so we get a “Oops sorry we missed you” card and I have to drive over to the local PO.)
