COVID Card #353

April 23, 2021 | 0 comments

In the midst of so much pain and injustice, it’s good to remember the good things that have come out of Minnesota — like Elof Wedin and Minnowpedia. I don’t know if MNOpedia is pronounced Minnow-pedia, but if it’s not, it should be. So cute. And, one could argue that Wedin came out of Sweden as he was 18 when he immigrated to the US, but as we are a country of immigrants (whether you like it or not), I say he was a Minnesotan; and besides, his prefrontal cortex wasn’t even fully developed when he moved to Minnesota.

You can see examples of Wedin’s work on the websites for the Smithsonian American Art Museum,

Wedin created two post office murals: Street Scene (Litchfield, Minnesota) and Return from the Fields (Mobridge, South Dakota).

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.
