In recent years, Wednesday Journal has published letters from exasperated Oak Park residents regarding problems with the U.S. Postal Service (USPS). I’m afraid those problems have not improved and may be even worse than before. When our regular mail carrier is working, we get mail. When he isn’t, we don’t. For the past two days, there has been no mail delivery on our block. And even when mail is delivered, the delivery process leaves much to be desired. On a recent Monday morning, I mailed an anniversary card to my wife at the South Oak Park Post Office. It took three days to arrive at our house. And we live three blocks away from the post office. Calls and letters to the local post office go unanswered. They just don’t care. No wonder the USPS is bleeding money. Their service is terrible.
