to the editor:

in reading ruth unterberg's letter ("no mail saturdays," july 29), i'm inclined to partially agree with her-giving up one day of delivery to save the rising cost of stamps, which will continue to go up for some time as there does not seem to be a strong will to keep this from happening. but saturday is not a good day. think of all the three-day weekends and not being able to have mail delivered on saturday, sunday and monday. some mail cannot wait three days to get to its destination and fedex is just too expensive. perhaps closing the post office on wednesday or thursday might be an answer, but i cannot imagine there will be much enthusiasm for mail-less saturdays, or any mail-less days for that matter.
