Looking back on the Amazon-USPS relationship on “Save the Post Office”

SteveBlog, Story

With all the news this week about the relationship between Amazon and the Postal Service, we thought it might be helpful to take a look back at the articles posted on “Save the Post Office” about the topic, most of them written by or with the help of former postmaster Mark Jamison. We were asking questions about the implications of the Amazon deals with the USPS from the very beginning, back in 2013, but getting answers, as Jamison explains in these articles, has never been easy because the details are kept secret.
