The financially struggling U.S. Postal Service sought Wednesday, May 9, 2012 to tamp down concern over wide-scale cuts, revealing it will seek to keep thousands of rural post offices open with shorter hours. Under the emerging strategy, no post office would be closed. But more than 13,000 rural mail facilities could see reduced operations of between two and six hours. (AP Photo/J. Scott Applewhite)
