COVID Card #285

February 14, 2021 | 0 comments

Sometimes Wikipedia typos are very disappointing — as in the case of artist Elsie Driggs. Wiki P’s list of post office muralists shows Elsie Diggs. I dug Diggs. Driggs is much less sketchy. The mistake does nothing to change how I feel about some of Elsie’s work: I dig it. As with too many of the post office muralists, it’s hard to find Driggs’s (Driggs’? I can never remember…) work online.

Driggs made one post office mural: LaSalle’s Quest for the Mississippi (Rayville, Louisiana).

Happy Valentine’s Day!

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.
