Quote of the Day

“I’m annoyed when people use the term ‘junk mail.’ To some, it’s ‘junk mail’ but to others, it’s solicitation from a favorite charity, it’s news on an attractive mortgage interest rate to the young couple buying their first home, it’s information on a bargain price on a car for someone who needs one — and yes, it’s a part of the economic engine that makes this country go.”

— USPS Public Affairs and Communications VP Azeezaly Jaffer.
