No mail monopoly
To the Editor:
Re: Mr. Bill Silvester’s letter of Nov. 8. I’m prone to hyperbole, too, and I vomited as I read his complaint about the U.S. Postal Service’s past sponsorship of Lance Armstrong’s cycling team.
Most folks understand why a company puts its name on a widely viewed sports entity. The people who run the Postal Service made the decision to advertise that way. Actually, it’s not a bad idea, considering the popularity of cycling and, until recently, Armstrong. A “government-enforced monopoly” though? Really? How so? The only thing the Postal Service has a monopoly on is that mailbox on the curb.
