Washington Outlook: Capital Wrapup

THE POSTAL SERVICE

Postmaster General Marvin T. Runyon could lose his job over something as innocent as a cancelled stamp. Last May, 82 senators urged Runyon to print a POW-MIA stamp, but an advisory board--taking its cue from the Postmaster--recently gave the idea a thumbs down. Now, irate senators, already unhappy with Runyon's performance, are demanding that he be fired. When the Postal Board of Governors meets on Oct. 3, it will feel pressure to cancel Runyon's job.EDITED BY OWEN ULLMANN
