If you’ve been reading me a while, you know that I have varied interests. I add new ones all the time, never really leaving the old behind, but possibly setting them aside for a while. I have now come back to an old love — letter writing and added a couple of new loves, fountain pens and inks.
You may also know that the US Postal Service is in financial trouble. It could go bankrupt and totally close by this winter. I find this horrifying. Jon Stewart recently talked about this situation on his Daily Show. If you are a fan, you know he has a particular take on things. I’ve always loved Jon and not just because he’s cute as hell!
I originally found the link to Jon’s show on Melissa’s Viva Snail Mail Blog on her McCaskill Mail post. (I tried to post a link directly to the post, but for some reason, I couldn’t.) Melissa suggested that we write a letter to Senator McCaskill to thank her for supporting the USPS. I like that idea!
After reading her post I went online and got Jon Stewart’s address at the Daily Show and left it in the comments section. You can get both addresses at the link above.
We’ve had a bit of illness in the house over the last several days — fevers, flu shot and dental work. My letters are going out today, possibly with some others. Won’t you join us in some postal love?
