COVID Card #120

September 2, 2020 | 0 comments

Like the past several COVID cards, today’s is about a post office muralist. Paul Arlt was a 20th century American artist. He painted Saturday in Enterprise, for the Enterprise, Alabama post office. The mural now hangs in the Enterprise Public Library.

Paul Arlt could be a little sketchy with his paintings. His NASA Art Project (yes, NASA has an art project, maybe when I run out of post office material…), Big Dish Antenna, was quite sketchy in my opinion, as is Launch Sites on the Cape. I’m not going to get technical and wax all art-critic-y on you. That’s not my jam. And this is about post offices, not art.

Go forth and learn…

The United States Postal Service has been hit hard by the pandemic. Controlling elements of the Federal Government (the president and Republican Senate) do not want to provide aid to the service. So, it’s up to us. It may seem insignificant, but if we all sent just a few letters a week, we could help ensure that our daily, free mail delivery service continues. For the past (see the card number above) days, I have drawn a card each day and mailed it to someone the next day (none are sent on Sundays; two are sent on Mondays). Please consider mailing cards and letters while we still can for 55 cents (first class letter postage). If the USPS fails, you could find it costs $8 or more to send a letter. And that’s just one of the ways we will all lose if the USPS shuts down.
