COVID Card #136

September 18, 2020 | 0 comments

COVID Card #136 was inspired by post office muralist, Richard Zoellner. Zoellner, who has works at the Smithsonian American Art Museum and the National Gallery (among others), painted six post office murals: Ore Docks and Steel Mills (Cleveland, Ohio), Fort Hamilton Agriculture Industries of Hamilton (Hamilton, Ohio), Gathering the Apple Crop (Medina, Ohio — this mural has been destroyed), Waterfront and the Coal Barges (Portsmouth, Ohio), and Landscape at Frogtown (Mannington, West Virginia). He also assisted with Landmarks of Cincinnati (Cincinnati, Ohio).

It’s raining. That is such a good thing. It’s probably raining too much, but that’s how life rolls these days. We got this.

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.
