Governmental Irony

The Postal Service is losing money at an enormous rate. The Wall Street Journal reported on it today in this article. Now there are many reasons for this, but I figure if they stopped advertising on TV, they may be able to save a couple of bucks.

A few moments ago, there was a knock at my front door. It was a representative from the census bureau, handing me our census form. The government paid someone to personally hand me my census form. It comes with a postage paid return envelope. Now I'm not complaining, the way I figure it there would be some people who wouldn't return it based on that. But to send it out? Wouldn't it cost less to send it in the mail?
