COVID Card #92

August 5, 2020 | 0 comments

I try to steer clear of celebrating controversial people with these little postcards. It’s harder than you might think. Remarkably, famous people, like the rest of us, always seem to have done at least one or two things that are at best regrettable and at worst horrifically appalling. Unfortunately, when it comes to politicians, these “things” are often of a different magnitude.

Card 92 recognizes stamp collector and prohibition ender, Franklin Delano Roosevelt. Despite the little issue (absolute sarcasm there!) regarding the atomic bomb, Roosevelt is the kind of guy I wouldn’t mind having in the big chair today. He led the country out of the depression. He established jobs that not only helped some American families survive, but they improved roads, bridges, and more. And did I mention that he ended prohibition? I know a lot of people in quarantine (or close) who are very grateful for that.

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.
