Subject:   [september17discuss] solidarity with postal workers?

hey all,

I am here in upstate NY recovering from a staph infection at my uncle's who is a PhD in electrical engineering and works at IBM and he could not understand why folks marched to the postal workers.  He told me that postal workers have 25% less usage in this modern age and therefore should face reflective cuts.  He also asked me when was the last time I sent someone mail and offered the same question to all of the occupiers who are so dependent on email, twitter and facebook for our communications.

I am usually pretty good and talking points, but I did not have a good response on why occupy wall street (can we please, please avoid activism speak of acronyms and OWS) supports the postal workers.  Can someone please give me an educated informed response on why we support the postal workers?  Keep in mind that we are talking to each other on this and not outreaching to media, but at sometime the media will ask the same questions and we should be ready.

Peace and Love,

I think I will be back in the streets on Friday with no more nasty pustules on my face.
