Postmaster General Patrick Donahoe says the U.S. Postal Service will run out of cash and face a shutdown by July or August unless Congress acts. Postal officials are asking Congress for authority to cut Saturday mail deliveries and delay payment of retirement benefits. How is the USPS evolving to meet the increase in e-mail, and decrease in snail mail?

Guests:

James Wigdel, spokesperson for the United States Postal Service

Jerry Cerasale, senior vice president for government affairs with the Direct Marketing Association

John Beaumont, president of the California State Association of Letter Carriers and member of the National Association of Letter Carriers, affiliated with the AFL-CIO

Jim Campbell, postal policy consultant and attorney in private practice, previously with the President's Commission on the U.S. Postal Service
