Pity indeed! The USPS has thousands of post offices around the country. Many are in small towns where it is uneconomical to keep them open, but these small post offices are gathering places for local residents who fight against their closure. USPS is also obliged to deliver to rural areas where the cost of delivering the mail is much higher. UPS and FedEx have the option to charge more to deliver to these places or simply not deliver to these locations at all. The USPS doesn't have that option. And there are many other examples where the USPS has it's hands tied by congress.
