COVID Card #165

October 17, 2020 | 0 comments

Aside from having name that has inspired several fictional law enforcement characters, the internet doesn’t have a lot to say about John Law Walker. He painted two post office murals: The Pony Express Station (Lockhart, Texas) and The Stage Coach (South Pasadena, California). I rather like this clownish, cubist-ish, flowery painting of a woman. It could be mine for $3,800. Hmmm…do you think a GoFundMe would work? Maybe I’ll write the president. He told a town hall that $400 million was like a peanut. That makes $3,800 a crumb of a crumb…less than pocket change…something that one easily misplaces and forgets about…something that gets thrown out with the trash. Yoo-hoo…Mr. President…

PS That first bit — about the fictional characters — is just something I made up. It sounds right though, doesn’t it? I guess you shouldn’t believe everything you see on the web, even if your friends are the people saying it.

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.
