COVID Card #152

October 4, 2020 | 0 comments

Card 152 was inspired by the post office muralist Edward Biberman. Like many artworks during the McCarthy error, some of Biberman’s work was inspected for “subversive” messages or content. And like many artworks during the McCarthy era, nothing shady — or dare I say sketchy — was found. Big fat surprise there. It does beg the question, how will history refer to the present. The COVID19 Era? The QAnon Era (I do hope we’d come up with something more representative like, “The When Many Americans Completely Lost Their Ability to Think Critically Era”)? The Paranoia Era? The Russia Era?

I digress. I know. It’s hard to believe.

I am drawn (no pun intended and, again, a big surprise) to his bridges to no where (though the phrase brings back bad memories), floating shapes, square patches of light, and shadow.

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.
