COVID Card #197

November 18, 2020 | 0 comments

Wikipedia’s post office murals list calls Alfred D. Crimi “Alfredo Crimi.” Naturally, when I asked the oracle about “Alfredo Crimi,” it asked if I didn’t mean “Alfredo Creamy.” It never would have occurred to me that a common misspelling of “creamy” was “crimi.” Maybe I should be editing these errors on Wikipedia when I find them…

Creamy, I mean Crimi, painted four post office murals: Transportation of the Mail and Post Office Work Room (Washington DC), Work, Religion, and Education (South Hampton, Massachusetts), and Anthony Wayne (Wayne, Pennsylvania).

Some of his work can be seen 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.
