OPEN LETTER: Mr. Trump, Intentional Delays to USPS Deliveries May Force Millions of Businesses to Close

Re: Intentional Delays to USPS Deliveries May Force Millions of Businesses to Close

NEWS UPDATE. FEBRUARY, 2021: “Louis DeJoy to face Congress over USPS delays”

Open letter to President Donald Trump and U.S. Postal Service Postmaster General Louis DeJoy,

usps7 300x192 - OPEN LETTER: Mr. Trump, Intentional Delays to USPS Deliveries May Force Millions of Businesses to Close

I am pleading with you to end your march towards destroying the U.S. Postal Service. As if the pandemic was not bad enough, you just made it worse. Your jarring actions by intentionally slowing down mail deliveries are harming millions of small businesses and consumers and disenfranchising voters. Trump administration is undermining the Postal Service in an election that’s going to be dependent on mail-in ballots.

We are under relentless attacks. Each day, we hear how deliveries have slowed to unprecedented levels. One of our customers reported driving to four shuttered post offices before finding one that was opened.

Letter carriers are reporting they were instructed to delay deliveries as piles of undelivered mail are stacked up at distribution centers. This raises the specter for more muddling to harm the nation’s postal delivery network. Another ScanMyPhotos.com customer reported tracking their delivery to find out her returned scanned photos for a memorial service were in transit and delayed for nearly two weeks. [We added instant uploading so those precious pictures were immediately received online].


Every e-commerce business, millions of companies have one thing in common, logistics. How to get your goods to market? USPS is our lifeline and that’s why we are speaking up.

We joined Yahoo Finance’s Kristin Myers to discuss this open letter to President Trump as the USPS struggles to stay afloat amid the coronavirus pandemic. WATCH THE INTERVIEW.

‘We see every day how a slowdown in the Postal Service is impacting small businesses.

The U.S. Postal Service is essential. It is a constitutionally-mandated public service employing 630,000 people. They even helped create the innovations that led to this USPS commercial profiling ScanMyPhotos.com. We could not have pioneered bulk high volume photo scanning without their years of help. They are the reason for our success.

Over the years, the Postal Service became the catalyst for our success in digitizing more than 600 million pictures.

“Gratitude: Actor and social activist Danny Glover recorded a public service announcement expressing gratitude to Postal Workers.”

Today, nearly 40% of all our online orders are due to families rushing to preserve the lifetime of memories for relatives lost to covid-19. They need digitally archived pictures for online memorial services. Customers are facing delays of two weeks at a time when the last thing they need to worry about is deliveries. We pioneered a list of dauntingly complex procedures to make sure every order is perfect, yet the USPS leadership is harming our business.


  • Postmaster General Louis DeJoy, if anyone believes this is all about cost-cutting, rather than election rigging and disenfranchisement, I have a bridge to sell you.
  • We faced many challenges over the past three decades in business, from technological shifts from film to digital and 9/11 when consumers stopped traveling and taking pictures. Yet, the Postmaster General’s actions are the most significant threat to our company.
  • The U.S. Postal ‘Sevice’ is named that and not “U.S. Postal ‘Business'” because it is a critical public service, just as are other essential services like police and fire.
  • Imagine if it was 2012. Just months before the elections and President Obama INTENTIONALLY SLOWED DOWN THE MAIL TO STEAL AN ELECTION? Hired a postmaster general with no experience who contributed $1.2 million to his campaign who had financial interests in the competition — like UPS and a top trucking company? Fired the top USPS executives. Then intentionally slowed down the mail to disenfranchise voters and hurt millions of businesses and consumers?

Mike Hardeman, better known by most of you as “Rocky Mountain Mike,” is the hilarious song parody guy from the Stephanie Miller Show.

Rally to #SupportThePostalService

Photo scanning has also become a trending activity as families stay home and seek normalcy projects, including to unclutter decades of nostalgic photo snapshots. This recent “New Yorker” cartoon explains why people eagerly are revisiting those nostalgic photo memories.

U.S. Postal Service in Irvine, CA Your actions, as reported by Jacob Bogage at The Washington Post, “Postal Service memos detail ‘difficult’ changes, including slower mail delivery,” are having destructive ramifications. “The new directive goes against the training postal workers have traditionally received, which says they should avoid leaving letters behind and make sure items are delivered promptly, even if that means making multiple trips,” the Washington Post reported.

Digital Commerce 360 reported that since the coronavirus pandemic, ”Ecommerce order volume has increased nearly 47%.”

According to Tim Levin, transportation reporter at Business Insider, “DeJoy instructed workers to stop logging over time and leave the mail at distribution centers if it would delay their routes.”

USPS Distribution Center as they transport boxes of photos to be scanned and returnedIf this maddening policy continues, millions of small businesses, already affected by the pandemic, risk closing down.

While I await your response, to partly remedy your policy missteps, ScanMyPhotos.com has enhanced our fulfillment with express service to instantly upload pictures upon scanning. However, there are many other companies which equally rely on the USPS that cannot innovate. The mail left behind and on loading docks includes precious family photographs.

Mail is an essential part of our company. Delays, especially if instructed by the Postmaster General are unacceptable and unconscionable.

Your immediate reply to remedy this crisis is requested,

Why Every U.S. Business Must Support Joe Biden For President

Businesses must be about more than just selling stuff. They must use their voice to humanize the company. We pause from our standard commentary on family history and photo preservation to share this important message. Why Every Business Must Support Joe Biden For President and Kamala Harris for Vice President.


Watch A Socially Distanced Conversation: President Barack Obama and Vice President Joe Biden

From Decider: COVID-19 can’t stop President Obama and Vice President Joe Biden from palling around. Over the past few weeks, Obama and Biden sat down for a socially-distanced conversation about the ongoing coronavirus pandemic, Trump’s COVID response, Biden’s presidential campaign, and more. After a day of hype (that Obama and Biden campaign ad sure was effective), voters will finally be able to watch the Obama Biden video today on their respective social media channels.



The Obama Biden interview serves as the first time the former colleagues have appeared in person during the 2020 campaign, so fans of 44 — and “46” as the promo teased — will definitely want to check it out. When will the Obama Biden conversation go live? How do I watch the Obama Biden video? Here’s everything you need to know.

Former Vice President Joe Biden and former President Barack Obama sat down for a socially distant conversation to discuss the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic and the steps they believe need to be taken to right the American economy.

Why I’m Voting for Vice President Joe Biden, Anthony Scaramucci

  • The two men appear together in a new ad hyped by the Biden campaign
  • Both men entered a building separately wearing masks and had a conversation from a distance
  • They met at Obama’s Washington, D.C. office 
  • They diss President Trump for saying ‘No, I don’t take responsibility at all’ for the coronavirus 
  • ‘Those words didn’t come out of our mouths while we were in office,’ said Obama 
  • Biden said Trump ‘can’t relate in any way’ 
  • Polling shows Biden with a consistent lead over President Trump but less enthusiasm among his supporters 

How you too can help. Donate and support Joe Biden.

Archiving Historic Photos in Chicago, The “Millions of Moments” Photo Collection

Archiving Historic Photos in Chicago

Here is an archivist’s dream story. How millions of pictures were preserved by the Chicago History Museum. Millions of Moments: The Chicago Sun-Times Photo Collection.

This Chicago Sun-Times article was reported by 


Until then, the location and condition of the newspaper’s photo archive had been a mystery — owners and employees of the Sun-Times were unaware the negatives were sitting in a storage facility about 100 miles west of Chicago.


The millions of images captured iconic moments. There was the back-to-school Bud Billiken Parade in 1953. Elvis Presley performing at the Chicago Stadium in 1972. Mayor Harold Washington being inaugurated in 1983. Walter Payton playing during the Chicago Bears championship 1985 season.

Details on the “Millions of Moments: The Chicago Sun-Times Photo Collection” exhibition at the Chicago History Museum. “Millions of Moments: The Chicago Sun-Times Photo Collection. From soaring joy to deep grief, beaming pride to livid outrage, the photojournalists of the Chicago Sun-Times captured these emotions and more as they doggedly, and often artfully, documented the city’s breaking news. Their bold images—of sports and entertainment legends, presidents, and everyday Chicagoans—earned the Sun-Times the moniker “Chicago’s Picture Newspaper” during the twentieth century.”

Beyond just photos, 35mm slides hold a rich treasure of nostalgia.

BONUS. ScanMyPhotos [which is not affiliated with this project] has created a unique 10% DISCOUNT FOR CHICAGO CUSTOMERS!
