Postal Service Testing Out Same-Day .Com Shipping

    The internet may be one of the biggest obstacles to profitability for the U.S. Postal Service, with people choosing to send e-mails instead of letters.  But as the holiday season gets into full swing, the USPS is testing a way to get the World-Wide Web back on their side.

    FOX News Radio's Mike Majchrowitz reports from Washington:

    Snail mail, no more.  The Postal Service is trying out a new same-day package delivery service.  Called Metro Post, the service is aimed at internet shoppers who now have to wait a day or more to see their purchases.

    It will start next month in San Francisco as a test market, and if it goes well there, it could next expand to nine other big cities like Boston, Chicago and New York.  The Postal Service hopes the service will help offset some of the $16 billion a year it has been losing.
