Husch Blackwell Postal Service Contracting Partner and former Postal Service attorney David Hendel spoke on Federal News Radio's In Depth show about his recent article, “The Ghosts of Postal Past, Present and Future,” from Husch Blackwell’s blog The Contractor’s Perspective. Hendel explained that the Ghost of Postal Past represented the “good ol’ days” of the U.S. Postal Service, which reached its high-water mark for volume in 2006.  Just six years later, today's Ghost of Postal Present “is not looking very good … with all the IOU’s coming out of his pockets.”   As to the Ghost of Postal Future, Hendel is optimistic.  “I painted a bright future for the Postal Service, within the new reality, in the article that I wrote, because I do think the Postal Service has a role to play,” Hendel said. That role, Hendel believes, includes the Postal Service finding its proper role in hybrid mail and providing a link between physical and electronic addresses.
