COVID Card #164

October 16, 2020 | 0 comments

Mallette Dean painted one post office mural, Agriculture, in Sebastopol, California. I’m a fan of exaggerated perspective, which the mural has a bit of, but it’s a little too quaint and charming for my personal tastes. Luckily for good old Mallette, I am not an art critic and my opinion will not likely ever reach him (unless you have friends who communicate with the dead and you feel the need to share).

I do like many of his woodcuts and engravings. You can see some at the Smithsonian American Art Museum.

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.
