This just in: Periodical postal rate increase coming

This isn’t good news for print mags. The United States Postal Service announced today that a 1.8 percent increase in periodical rates will go into effect in April. That supposedly will net them an extra $340 million for the rest of fiscal year 2011. To be fair, they say they lost $8.5 billion in fiscal year 2010.
