Disastrous. I do not think that word means what he thinks it means.But the president of the National Association of Letter Carriers, Fredric Rolando, said the end of Saturday mail delivery is "a disastrous idea that would have a profoundly negative effect on the Postal Service and on millions of customers," particularly businesses, rural communities, the elderly, the disabled and others who depend on Saturday delivery for commerce and communication.
Seriously, people will adjust. Packages will still be delivered, so mail order meds and such won't be impacted. The only profoundly negative effect is on the mail carriers who will be missing out on Saturday employment. He knows this. He is just trying to rationalize and use emotional buzzwords like "elderly" and "disabled." I dislike that kind of intellectual dishonesty. Say what you mean, buddy. No one would blame you. You're the one guy who should care about that aspect of it.
