    Rep. Bobby Rush, D-1st, is spreading the word that some post offices in his district might be in danger of closing.

    In a news release, Rush said that at least four post offices are being reviewed for possible closure as part of a major reorganization. He says they should voice concerns they have at their local post offices.

    The U.S. Postal Service has seen a big drop in the amount of mail being sent and is projecting a $7.1 billion loss for fiscal year 2009. As a result, postal officials have sent a list of nearly 700 facilities for possible closure or consolidation to the Postal Regulatory Commission.
