Snail Mail

snail_mailPost Master General John Potter made an announcement on Tuesday March 2 that the USPS would be cutting it services to the nation. Citing record breaking declines in volume as the culprit for the decision.

It seems like more Americans are relying on the internet to conduct business. At the same time rising gas prices are also taking a toll on the dwindling mail-order service. Potter was quoted as saying “The crisis we are facing gives us a historic opportunity to make changes that will lay the foundation for a leaner, more market-responsive Postal Service that can thrive far into the future.”

Now I am not one to gossip but, I am glad I don’t work at the post office. I am sure we all understand the old phrase “going postal”. The last thing anyone wants to do is threaten a postal worker’s pension plan. In fact, Potter did mention some changes to the system. However, he was very clear to not use the terms layoff or early retirement.

As of January 2010, Dulymus “Deuce” McAllister announced his retirement from the New Orleans Saints. Deuce was drafted as a running back for the Saints in 2001. Anyone who has had the opportunity to meet this young man will probably say, “There is more to Deuce than meets the eye.” He is not only a record-holding running back (the first Saint to have twenty-two 100-yard games, and the first to rush over 1,000 yards in 3 straight seasons) but also a business-minded, caring and giving individual. On February 7, 2010, the New Orleans Saints won Super Bowl XLIV and therefore, Deuce was a recipient of a Super Bowl Ring.

Deuce founded the Catch 22 Foundation in 2002. This foundation has been a blessing to many children and families. The motto for the foundation is: “Dedicated to enhancing the lives of under-privileged youth in the Gulf South Region.” The foundation provides meals to families at Thanksgiving, provides school supplies as well as school uniforms, sponsors Christmas shopping trips for children, etc. De’Shundra McAllister is the director for the Catch 22 Foundation www.catch22foundation.org
