It's a dog-eat-dog world, and I'm going to chew down as many frigging puppies as I can. Look, they didn't offer media mail out of the kindness of their hearts. They thought there was profit in it. Just because there isn't does not mean I should not take advantage of the system whenever possible. Hell, I sent my nephew's shoes Media Mail 3 months ago. And let's keep something in mind: It is OUR tax $$ that keeps them afloat in times of trouble, so I have already paid extra unwillingly.
Worst case scenario, I try to send something out, they open it and say it has to go PP or Prio. Big deal.


If you hit a Rowsdower, you get to keep it.

Actually, it's not — the USPS does not receive tax revenues.

It makes its money from the sale of hard goods (stamps) and services (that $13.65 you lay out to send something Express, for example), and attempts to stay afloat through periodic rate increases (such as the 37-cent one-ounce rate from 2002).
