Voice makes push for mail delivery

Original post made on Aug 15, 2008

Go on-line to register to have a paper sent to you in the mail when you can read it on-line for free? How much sense does that make? You can help reduce the carbon footprint of the paper by not printing it on paper.

Why did the Voice switch from mail delivery to carrier delivery a year or two ago in the first place anyway?

I had the delivery stopped because I didn't like the paper in my driveway (along with the blue bag) and I couldn't stop it with the mail when I'm away. I like walking up to the store to get the paper anyway. I would consider home delivery but only when it goes to mail, not before.
