The future of greeting cards and applause for an honest act



People have long used greeting cards as a means to share important emotions -- but how are they faring in this era of declining mail volume and electronic communication? This month's edition of Your Postal Podcast provides some answers, thanks to Susan January, head of the Greeting Card Association of America.

You'll also hear the story of an Arizona letter carrier whose recent act of honesty didn't go unnoticed. The podcast also features a roundup of the latest Postal Service news.
