COVID Card #338

April 8, 2021 | 0 comments

How on earth (or any other planet) could I possibly fail to share a paper in which the first word of the introduction is “Sketchy”? Carlos Lopez was one of the few Latinx post office muralists and may have been the only one to have been born in Cuba.

Lopez, who died at the rather young age of forty-four, spent a lot of time in my home state of Michigan.

Lopez made four post office murals: The Pioneering Society’s Picnic (Birmingham, Michigan), The Stage at Dawn (Dwight, Illinois), Bounty (Paw Paw, Michigan), and Plymouth Trail (Plymouth, Michigan).

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.
