Don’t blame post office for UPS woes

Published: Friday, Dec. 27, 2013 - 11:10 am

Re "UPS delivers only excuses" (Letters, Dec. 27): As a retired U.S. Postal Service employee, I must point out that, unless letter writer Timothy Shull was joking, his rant concerning the government incompetence with late Christmas packages was off base. UPS is a private company and, apparently, private companies are subject to some miscues. As for me, I had an article ordered on Monday from Oregon delivered to me by the USPS Priority Mail on Thursday. No bad. Certainly, government has a lot of warts to be exposed, such as the Watt Avenue interchange, but there's no need to blame it for the troubles of private companies.
