I can mail something to California for 50 cents.  I'm okay with an increase, but reasonable.

Most likely, but until they over haul the whole USPS, they will lose money with so much waste. Maybe it is time to privatize it?

Curious; why in 4 months?  I stopped mailing anything once our stamps went over $1.   I do not see why a mailman gets X times more pay than a newspaper kid; they do the same job (except the kid is better!)

Looking forward to the day they raise it high enough to get the govt to require an email to get their tax bill, then all of our lists will have emails and we can just ignore those bums at the postal service.

Haven't thought about it, but it won't likely change my stamp-buying behavior if it happens again.
