I miss letter writing. When e-mail began I was a devoted letter writer. I resisted the technology though I always said that I would eventually relent to e-mail. I was mourning the letter even before it was dead. In the last year, I have written exactly one letter. It was on the hottest day of the year - I think it hit 103 at the airport with a generous helping of humidity - and I had barricaded myself in my bedroom with the AC and Arrested Development DVDs. I didn't even have paper to write on. I had to use a printout from an EEG I had a few years ago.
Write a letter. Do it for Mr. ZIP.
