    I am not a postal worker and never have been. I have read all the articles about the dieing postal service. This is just another nail in the coffin of the Post Office. I often read that it just takes one small crack in the dike to lead to a total failure. Keep it up you computer freaks and there will be a large segment of our society that will not be able to do anything because the computers have taken over.

    Might be just the self regulated CB License.

    Everyone wants to "Go Green"?? I still get the paper bills when i can. If the computer goes down or someone hacks your e-mail account , i still have the paper? Too old fashioned to change much now

    Who says there won't be any more paper licenses? The way I read the caption, it just says that paper licenses won't be delivered using surface mail anymore. They'll use drones.

    Next action: just go to the nearest grocery store and get your license in a cereal box:

    I guess you have never had mail stolen from your mailbox or had mail addressed to you mis-delivered and never find its way to you? You are a lucky individual. :)

    The US Postal Service handled 56.7 billion pieces of First Class mail in 2018.

    The trend is downward (it was 58.7 billion the year before), but if EVERY SINGLE ham in the U.S. received mailing in 2018, and that was eliminated, the rseulting decrease would be 0.0014515%

    Our effect is negligible.

    I see that some of the 'old farts' have never hand-coded HTML, otherwise, they would understand that the "/" (slash) is a NOT logical operator.

    as in:
