Three-Day-a-Week Mail Delivery Forecasted by Postmaster General

In a front-page USA Today article by Carly Mallenbaum, Postmaster General Patrick Donahoe forecasted, "Falling mail volume and soaring red ink may soon doom Saturday mail delivery and prompt three-day-a-week delivery within 15 years."

He also projects a rise in the 1st class mail rate to 45-cents within three years.

Donahoe's forecast is based on a projected $8.3 billion loss this year as the drift from paper to electronic communication hammers the Postal Service.
