For one dollar you can send a birthday card to Uncle Moosejaw in Alaska and an anniversary card to Aunt Aloha in Hawaii and the post office will give you back 12 cents in change.
Remember now, we’re talking actual greeting cards filled out at your kitchen table then physically moved many thousands of miles by real people for 44 cents a piece.
How on earth can the United States Postal Service make a profit on this transaction?
