All right, maybe there is something to this apocalypse stuff after all

The Washington Post reports that the USPS is ready to sell ad space on stamps.

I'm sure this is intentional, if perhaps unconscious, to subvert the entire concept of public service and move toward a system where anything that can't pay for itself through donations from the rich won't exist. Ads on Medicare drug cards were a start (and they served their purpose by fooling some people into thinking that they had to go to a certain chain to get benefits). If we don't see those things that we (collectively, as a society, through government) support, then eventually we'll quit believing that there are such things that we should and must support as a society, and that everything is the dispensation of some corporate sponsor.
