    Earlier this week I mailed some important documents Priority Mail- with tracking. It has vanished. I ran the tracking number and there is no record of it. I personally delivered it to the Post Office and it is gone. Now I have to get copies of the missing documents and mail them again. This time UPS or FEDEX. Has anyone else had this experience with the USPS? What good is the USPS?

    The Teamsters union wants to prohibit United Parcel Service Inc. from using drones or driverless vehicles to deliver packages.

The two sides are starting to negotiate one of the largest collective bargaining agreements in the U.S., which covers around 260,000 UPS employees and expires in July. The International Brotherhood of Teamsters’ National Negotiating Committee this week submitted to...

    An Ithaca man accused of killing a UPS driver said in court Monday afternoon that not only did he believe he shot and killed Donald Trump, but that no evidence could be presented to him to suggest otherwise. Justin R. Barkley, 38, said during his arraignment and subsequent attempt to plead guilty, "I shot and killed Donald Trump purposely, intentionally and very proudly." Now obviously Barkley is out of his mind. But the murder of an innocent man is another example of how the media's climate of hate can backfire. Did the media's paranoid fantasies about Trump feed into Barkley's...
