COVID Card #269

January 29, 2021 | 0 comments

Sante Graziani and I share a last name. Well, no, we don’t, but the number of times telemarketers have asked for “Ms. Graziani” when they’ve called me is astounding. How one can get Graziani out of Granzo is beyond me.


Sante was an artist and art educator. Some of his work can be seen online at the websites for the MoMA, Harvard Art Museums, and the Brooklyn Museum.

Sante created two post office murals: Lovers Leap (Columbia Junction, Iowa) and Joseph Deford and His Friends Build the First Cabin in Bluffton (Bluffton, Ohio).

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.
