This is the first hearing that the Committee has held on the U.S. Postal Service this Congress. Tomorrow’s hearing will focus on rates, service, and how the ailing Postal Service can innovate, grow revenue, and adapt to the digital age. Two panels of witnesses, which include Postmaster General Megan Brennan, USPS Inspector General David Williams and representatives from private industry, will discuss those issues and the prospects of reform legislation. The hearing will also provide the first forum for members of the committee and stakeholders to weigh in on the bipartisan Improving Postal Operations, Service, and Transparency Act of 2015 (S. 2051) or  “iPOST.” For more information on the bill, please visit:

Because, like the fine publication Tablet, whom I borrowed this concept from, I too am committed to bringing you the best, smartest, most enlightening and entertaining reporting and writing I'm able to provide, all free of charge. I take pride in my loyal readership, and I'm thrilled that you choose to engage with me in a way that is both thoughtful and thought-provoking. But the Internet, for all of its wonders, poses challenges to civilized and constructive discussion, allowing vocal—and, often, anonymous—minorities to drag it down with invective (and worse).

I'm asking people who'd like to post comments on my blog to pay a nominal fee—less a paywall than a gesture of your own commitment to the cause of great conversation. All proceeds go to helping me bring you the provocative and/or entertaining articles that brought you here in the first place.

Readers can still interact with me FREE of charge via Facebook comments and Google+ comments! You can also reach me via Twitter @davelucas

I hope this new largely symbolic measure will help create a more pleasant and cultivated environment for all! Those of you who choose to contribute, thanks for your support.
