Will the Small Town Post Office Disappear

The USPS notified a number of rural post offices they might have to close their doors.  But small-town postmasters are fighting back, saying that shutting their doors would be equal to shutting the town itself.  What does the post office mean to small towns?  Why do entire towns rely on their post offices for more than the mail?  We talk to a retired postmaster who's now fighting to keep small town post offices open, and explains why a little-known retirement fund could save everything.
