    The Secret Weapon at Christmas for the Post Office: Sundays - Wall Street Journal

    Both United Parcel Service Inc. and rival FedEx Corp. struggled with a flood of last-minute deliveries over the holidays, with varying degrees of success. But public-sector rival U.S. Postal Service said Friday it thinks it did just fine.
