A letter-writing blog extolling the virtues of snail mail:
old-fashioned postal paper mail and all of its varied accessories.
That card just made my day, as did your comment about not posting it when he was in office! he he
I know what you mean about getting on a list! I recently got a cool postcard of Che Guevara sent to me from Cuba and figured "that's it...I'm on a list for sure now." For a while, in my youth, I adopted a British spelling habit. It seemed sophisticated. After a while it was just sophomoric. Except for "theatre." I can't do "theater."
Oh wow I must agree I love the brits way of spelling . as a matter of fact I have a british pen pal right now . wow now I am wondering if I am on a list . thanks for sharing and posting such a great blog .
That's HILARIOUS! I can't believe such a postcard exists! Glad you finally get a chance to use it -- although who knows, the FBI might still place you under surveillance, since I don't think they change administration when the executive does. You and the recipient. Ye be warned. ;)
I'm forwarding this post to firstname.lastname@example.org, since the current administration's surveillance is more out in the open. I guess that's the definition of "transparency".
Stephanie - too true. Actually, I've probably already been under surveillance for years...
Makes me so proud of how little trust the government of the people has in its people, or at least its critical ones.
Looks great on my REAL wall - lots of people commented that they loved this when they came over. All round general agreement from the UK with the sentiments on this one!
There's a big difference between belittlement and constructiveness. An editorial cartoon, unlike this card, will generally criticize the policy, not the man -- and I certainly don't think it's appropriate to insult the President of the United States, no matter who he is.If we were a little kinder in our observations and treatment of others, most of the world's problems would go away.
It could be from Canada too, based just on the spelling, as Canadians spell behaviour that way as well. I agree with this last comment from ChrisOverstreet, although one of the beautiful things about America is that Americans (theoretically) can speak their minds and criticize the government.
I had a feeling this post would generate some controversy. At least the recipient enjoyed it.
Eliza: agreed; it's a beautiful thing, and I hope it lasts. However, just because one has the right to be rude does not mean that one must be.
