Mail delivery in 2012 to be slowed down

The U.S. Postal service will close 252 mail processing centers and slow first-class delivery systems by next spring in order to help the agency from going bankrupt next year. In order to stay profitable by 2015, $20 billion in cuts are needed. The closures are expected to eliminate 28,000 jobs nationwide.  First-class mail will be lengthened to two to three days instead of one to three, periodicals would take two to nine days to deliver.
