30-Cent Stamp Proposal

At the rate our esteemed Postal Service keeps hitting the public with its boosts in the cost of stamps, it won't be long before only the rich are able to afford writing letters to The Times.

Suggestion: Instead of nickel-and-diming its customers to death with its incremental increases, why doesn't the Postal Service oligarchy just raise the price of first-class stamps to $5 and be done with it for awhile? At least this would do wonders for the sale of fax machines.
