'U.S. mail is not for sale'

U.S. Post Office employee Detra Parker chants during a protest Thursday outside a Staples store in Atlanta. Thousands of postal workers picketed Staples stores nationwide to protest a pilot program that allows the office supply chain to handle U.S. mail. The American Postal Workers Union fears layoffs and post office closings and says that unlike retail workers, postal workers "have taken an oath to protect the sanctity of the mail." Postmaster General Patrick Donahoe says the program is a response to customer demands for convenience.
