Postal help for Haiti and the environment in this month's Podcast

The March edition of Your Postal Podcast features an interview with a Postal Inspector who went to Haiti in hopes of helping the earthquake-ravaged country reestablish postal services. In addition, we travel to New York City to hear about the Morgan Processing & Distribution Center's unique "Green roof." Also, an English professor from Texas Tech University discusses the origins of the term "snail mail" and whether people mean any harm when they say it. Finally, we take a look at the latest national news involving the Postal Service, including comments from U.S. Census Bureau Director Robert Groves as he kicked off the 2010 Census forms' national mailing.
