Cleveland, OH - There are fewer mailboxes on curbsides as letter-writing declines.
The postal service is trimming the number of mailboxes as people instead keep in touch with e-mail and cell phones.
First-class, single piece mail has dropped 20 percent in six years.
Nationwide, the postal service removed 28-thousand mailboxes last year, about one in ten. More than a quarter million still stand ready to serve.
