PITTSBURGH (KDKA) – Jim Rietz can’t remember a time when he couldn’t rely on the U.S. Mail.
“You put something in the mail, you know it’s going to get there,” he said. “Somebody puts something in the mail, you know it’s going to come to you. It’s just one of those things you’ve always been able to count on.”
But for Rietz, that changed several months back. Days would pass when no mail came. Letters and checks that people had sent him never materialized. Distraught, he emailed all of his neighbors on Kinsman Street.
