What did he get? Five bucks and a book of stamps?
On a more serious note, if the USPS is in such dire financial straits, why are Post Offices like Benson even still open? For those unfamiliar with Benson, it is a small area between Bel Air and Fallston (think Jones Junction auto dealers and the State Police Barracks at the intersection of Bel Air & Harford Roads). They do not deliver mail. They take mail in, have PO boxes and pretty much sell stamps. They should have been absorbed by the Bel Air or Fallston PO long ago.
