COVID Card #37

June 11, 2020 | 0 comments

Many Americans depend on the USPS for low-cost prescription medicine delivery. We all appreciate our free home delivery of mail when we are too sick to leave the house (or, in my case, too lazy). When free rural delivery became standard even in rural areas in the early 1900s, one Arizona resident commented:

I am more than ever proud of being an American citizen. … I live three and a half miles from the Tempe post-office, and have been sick for a week past, yet my mail is brought to my door every morning, except Sunday. … It looks as if “Uncle Sam” had at last turned his eye in our direction.

Cards 1-100

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.
