COVID Card #336

April 6, 2021 | 0 comments

If I am correct, and I rarely am, William Riseman was better known as an interior designer, than a fine artist. Don’t get your panties in a fluff, interior designers, you are, indeed artists. It is possible that Mr. Riseman was also an architect. William Riseman, the post office muralist, created two murals in Lynn, Massachusetts. It is not difficult to believe that the man who created the Lynn murals also co-created the mural seen in this Cape Cod Times article. And it is not difficult to imagine that the man who helped create the Cape Cod mural was also into designing movie theaters. But really, all I have is a name, a location (the interior designer worked in Boston, the architect died in Boston, and the post office murals were/are in Massachusetts), and a very rough time frame.

I’ll leave it up to you and other better minds (than mine, of course, not yours; I’d never suggest there existed a better mind than yours).

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.
