COVID Card #134

September 16, 2020 | 0 comments

Card 134 was inspired by post office muralist, Ludwig Mactarian. Mactarian created one post office mural (though he is said to have assisted with at least two others): Cotton Growing, Manufacture, and Export in Dardanelle, Arkansas. You read that right. We’ve made it to Arkansas. As I mentioned in a previous card description, there were a LOT of post office muralists.

Mactarian is best known (when measured by www searches) for his military depictions. I am, of course, drawn to his more industrial scenes and architectural detail.

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.
