– Our partnership with Staples is a pilot project in which we’re selling our products and services at several Staples stores. The goal: to give customers more choices when it comes to purchasing postal products and services.

Comments:  Fact?  Missing from this post is the part about how the person you hand your package to at Staples will NOT be a USPS employee, entrusted with handling mail.  It will be a Staples employee. 

And it is hard to tell if the plan will make any money, in the spirit of transparency, the details of the deal with Staples are secret.

Fact is, it is all about perspective.  As a consumer of mail products, it would be nice to have more access in more places.  If I was a USPS employee, however, I don’t think I’d like this plan very much, and would have to consider the outsourcing of my job to the private sector as, well, privatization. That’s just my opinion.

Opinions are not facts, and shouldn’t be presented as such.
