OT: Fair rates

Is the USPS one-fits-all rate fair? If so then airlines should adopt the system, it's the same "A" to "B" delivery, location of A and B being immaterial.

Re: Net Neutrality

So, Denny, you think USPS has a flat rate because of a lack of interest in profit rather than a matter of principle that people should not be penalized for living in remote places?

Re: Net Neutrality

And why do you think the USPS does this?
