The Justice Department on Tuesday joined a lawsuit accusing Lance Armstrong of defrauding the U.S. government. The U.S. Postal Service spent $40 million sponsoring Mr. Armstrong's bicycling team from 1996 through 2004, including the years when he won six Tour de France titles.
The Postal Service overstated its potential savings from eliminating Saturday delivery, a proposal that would slow delivery of about 1 in 4 letters, the independent Postal Regulatory Commission said Thursday.
The independent panel that oversees the U.S. Postal Service has denied the agency's request to increase the cost of mailing a letter by 2 cents — to 46 cents.
Former President Jimmy Carter on Thursday afternoon left an Ohio hospital, where he spent two days recovering from a viral infection doctors say likely gave him stomach problems.
