It would be like taking your identity, ripping away a part of you.
For the people of Socorro, closing down its only post office would be a slap in the face.
The city has had tough times lately -- a bitter recall of a mayor, tensions on the City Council, a council member arrested, investigations of police officers and suits against the city.
Now the U.S. Postal Service is considering closing the only post office for miles around.
It's enough to get you mad as hell.
