That's a lot of locations to close!

there are a number of post offices closing in my state, and they are the ones that serve tiny communities. That means these people will have to drive an hour to get their mail! That makes me very, very angry! There will be no postal services for them at all, no delivery, no pick up, nothing. That's just wrong. It's like they don't count because they live in a farming community. Several have already had to move to PO boxes only and no home delivery, now they won't even have that. I think it's wrong wrong wrong.

Yet, in my city, there are 3 post offices on the same street in a 2 mile stretch! Not one of those is closing. I don't know how they are justifying it. I'd rather see the post office drop mail service to a few times a week than to close in small communities.
