Without direct taxpayer support?  Gee, what do they call the $165/year I pay for my P.O. Box?  How much do they charge for their stamps?  Who else do they think is paying for the USPS if not the taxpayer?  CNNMoney should know better.  There is no excuse for this kind of media ignorance (I almost used the term "journalist" until I realized I was talking about CNN).

can't see how. They haven't bought a delivery vehicle in 20-30 years.

The Grumman LLV entered service in 1987. The USPS purchased over 100,000 of these vehicles, of which the last was purchased in 1994.[1] Approximately 140,000 LLVs are in the USPS delivery fleet.
