Advertising Mail is Not 'Junk'
I would like to respond to the Sept. 8 letter, “Make junk mailers pay.” The letter suggested that raising the rates on advertising mail is a way to save the U.S. Postal Service money and also reduce the amount of mail. I’m not sure why it bothers anyone to receive mail. It doesn’t cost him anything to receive mail in his mailbox. For the writer to say, “We all wish it would end,” is a huge misstatement. The majority of people appreciate and want to receive catalogs and advertising mail in their mailboxes. If it wasn’t successful for the advertisers.
