Airmail, anyone? Remote parts of Alaska receive mail deliveries via parachute. The United States Postal Service goes to extraordinary lengths to make sure we receive our letters and packages in accordance with Federal law. All that could change — and very soon. Sure it would be great to get less junk mail, but imagine what life would be like without a service that brings your mail every day and takes your outgoing mail at no cost above that of postage.

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.
