Bureaucrats are people too. Bill was reminded of this when he recently had to take many large packages, unmetered, to the US Post Office in Sherman Oaks, CA. He was surprised, shocked even, at how nice and helpful the employees of the branch were. They helped him mail everything, had multiple workers help, and labeled one-by-one all that he was sending. They even stayed after the office had closed to finish on time. In our heated political climate, we should always remember that less is more when it comes to the government, but we shouldn’t vilify the actual people who do the job.

One other thought.
There are certain responsibilities that fall within the scope of Government.
Services that have no business being placed in private hands. Things done in OUR name and under authority of our Government. Obviously Defense heads the list. Justice. Everything from enforcement to the Courts and prosecution. Corrections. No one deprived of their rights by our government and in our name, should ever be handed off, with a price tag, to a private firm for incarceration. There are a ton of things the government does that it has no business doing but there are the core functions that it should never try to fob off. Even in the name of trying to save a buck.

I have a great deal of sympathy for the USPS. In my view one of the biggest domestic screw-ups Congress ever committed was requiring the Postal Service to make a profit. All the while requiring them to continue to provide services to every legal address in the country. At an 'Affordable Price' (set by Congress). Bricks without straw. There are large swaths of the country were the USPS is the only connection the area has with the outside world. Where FedEx and UPS don't serve because the population density makes it impossible to make a profit. Yet the service is provided every service day by the PO. Rain or shine or blizzard. And all at a dead loss. Yet they are required to do all this and still turn a profit or suffer the wrath of the Congress. And the ridicule of the general public.
Bricks without straw indeed.

Make that TWO post offices. I've yet to have a negative experience in Fort Collins, CO.

At a certain level of size and complexity, Bureaucracies appear to be necessary.

That does not mean they have to employ the evil, the malicious or the vindictive. But those are all human traits. They cannot be wished away and the same regulations there to protect the good and helpful cannot help but also protect those who should be fired.

"At a certain level of size and complexity, Bureaucracies appear to be necessary. That does not mean they have to employ the evil, the malicious or the vindictive."

But at the risk of painting with too broad a brush -- like that's ever stopped me before -- that's precisely the sort of worldview that attracts many people towards working for the government in the first place.

Well, that's ONE post office, out of, what, 8000?

I have two post offices near our home, one of which (Higley, AZ) the people are a joy to work with; the other (Queen Creek, AZ) it's like dealing with a bunch of bratty eight year-olds.

I sincerely believe if it were not for FedEx, UPS, et. al., and, due to them, USPS fighting for its life,Bill would've received DMV-style service. THAT is what competition does.
