COVID Card #362

Painter, lithographer and draftsman, Ross Eugene Braught was called “the greatest living American draftsman” during his lifetime by his friend and colleague, Thomas Hart Benton. (source)

From the comfort of my fragile glass house, I do like to toss a few pebbles at the radio, television, and www from time to time. Lords know my writing is full of typos, bad grammar, and boring drivel. That IS why I tend to keep it short. From my glass settee, I do like to nit-pick others, though. It’s not that I’m judging, it’s that I am easily amused. That someone felt the need to qualify the name “greatest living American Draftsman” by adding that the subject was called that “during his lifetime,” is funny. No?

Anyway… Braught created one post office mural: Waynesboro Landscape (Waynesboro, Mississippi).

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.
