The USPS traces its roots to 1775 during the Second Continental Congress, where Benjamin Franklin was appointed the first postmaster general. The cabinet-level Post Office Department was created in 1792 from Franklin's operation and transformed into its current form in 1971 under the Postal Reorganization Act.The USPS employed 626,764 workers (as of January 2014) and operated 211,654 vehicles in 2013. The USPS is the operator of the largest civilian vehicle fleet in the world. The USPS has exclusive access to letter boxes marked "U.S. Mail" and personal letterboxes in the United States.In the 1960s African Americans were appointed as postmasters of the nation’s three largestPost Offices – New York, Chicago, and Los Angeles. By the end of the 20 the century African Americans comprised 21 percent of all postal employees, serving at all levels of the Postal Service.

It was recently announced that the USPS will end Saturday mail delivery come August 2013. According to various resources, the Post Office is over $5.6 billion dollars in the red. But does Congress mandate for the USPS to pay years in advance of pension benefits have anything to do with this? We'll discuss. *Also, the Michigan Democratic Party has a horserace going on for who will lead the political group chairperson-ship, Mark Brewer or challenger Lon Johnson. With less than two weeks before the votes are tallied at Cobo Hall in Detroit on 2/23, we'll get all into what will prove to be a fight to lead Michigan Dems for the upcoming 2014 State Races.
