Courier Express and Postal Observer Lives Again

After announcing last week it would shut down and going offline for a few days, respected postal blog Courier Express and Postal Observer is back in business.

"The outpouring of support made me realize that I could not stop," publisher Alan Robinson told Dead Tree Edition today.

The blog came back to life yesterday with an in-depth look at FedEx's latest quarterly earnings report, which noted that the private carrier has become more reliant on the U.S. Postal Service to deliver its parcels. That kind of original, spin-free analysis makes Alan's work so important at a time when everyone has an opinion about USPS (and they're usually shaped by the mainstream media's uninformed reporting or by political half truths).

Welcome back, Alan.
