On July 31, the President’s Commission on the Postal Service issued its recommendations for postal reform to President Bush. The report is a thoughtful, concise, yet thorough evaluation of the U.S. Postal Service. The time for incremental change has passed, and the commission recommends a series of substantial, clear-eyed reforms that will ensure the viability of postal services for a long time to come. The recommendations are sensitive to the desire to preserve mail service to all addresses at affordable rates, and to the needs of postal employees in this shifting industry.
