COVID Card #242

January 2, 2021 | 0 comments

Daniel Celetano had FOURTEEN siblings — 14. At age 12, he became Thomas Hart Benton’s first student. I must say that, if I had 14 siblings and lived in what was probably not a palatial estate (given that it was in Manhattan’s Little Italy), I would have been highly motivated to put a little distance between myself and home, too.

Celetano created one post office mural: The Country (or Town, depending on the source) Store and the Post Office (Vidalia, Georgia).

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.
