Who needs foot traffic, anyway?

Fishersville Mike drops by the local post office, and something’s missing:

All of the newspaper boxes. No more News Leader. No more News Virginian. No more USA Today, Richmond Times Dispatch or Washington Post.

Even the boxes for the local freebie papers were gone, with one exception:

That had the note that the boxes needed to be removed by the end of April.

You’d think the American press would be encouraged to sell papers on Postal Service property, given its self-inflicted blindness of late.

    The USPS’s business plan for years has been to shoot itself in the foot. Why change now?

    Thanks for the link. I’m wondering if other post offices are losing their paper boxes also.
