Postbusters| Jon Stewart Daily Show -A hot new trend called bankruptcy has taken America by storm, and it’s now as close as the corner mailbox.
Appearing before Congress on September 6, 2011, PMG Patrick Donahoe proposed massive layoffs of postal workers. Jon Stewart replied, “Oh, you’re just going to layoff 220,000 postal workers? What could go wrong with that? After all, the phrase ‘going postal’ is virtually synonymous with reacting well to bad news.” Stewart also joked about Senator Clair McCaskill’s suggestion that USPS should launch “a marketing campaign for letter writing: “Hey, I have a better idea! Why don’t we just use stamps as adhesive tape! There, look at this! I just fixed this rip and it only cost $5.”
