    At a time when the U.S. Postal Service says it is experiencing a financial crisis, it purchased a $1.2 million home from an employee so he could relocate, a CNN investigation has found. The Postal Service bought this 8,400-square-foot South Carolina home so an employee could relocate. Postal Service spokesman Greg Frey said the home will be resold, as others have been. "It's not like we threw away a million dollars," Frey told CNN. "We are hoping it's going to go for the appraised value." But a real estate agent in the area said the home could be a tough...

    Postmaster General John E. Potter recently warned that economic times are so dire that the U.S. Postal Service may end mail delivery one day a week and freeze executive salaries. But his personal fortunes are nonetheless rising thanks to 40 percent in pay raises since 2006, a $135,000 bonus last year and several perks usually reserved for corporate CEOs. The changes, approved by the Postal Board of Governors and contained in a little-noticed regulatory filing in December, brought Mr. Potter's total compensation and retirement benefits to more than $800,000 in 2008. That is more than double the salary for President...

  • Netflix Hires Former U.S. Postmaster General as chief operations officer

    Netflix Hires Former U.S. Postmaster General as COO Netflix has hired former U.S. Postmaster General William J. Henderson as chief operations officer, effective January 23rd. Tom Dillon, who joined Netflix in 1999 and built the logistics and distribution systems at Netflix, will be retiring in April. If he could handle delivering 668 million pieces of mail per day to 130 million addresses with a budget of $68 billion, I think he can handle shipping a few movies (Netflix ships more than one million movies per day).
