I enjoyed William Chick’s recent letter about the absence of a post office in Indian Land. I thought it would be appropriate to respond here.
As a resident of Indian Land myself, I suppose it would be nice to have a post office here. However, there are a couple of reasons why our community isn’t likely to be getting one anytime soon.
For starters, the U.S. Postal Service (USPS), quite simply, is broke. The service is currently $15 billion in debt. You read that right – $15 billion.
