I usually try to comment on something uplifting in our society, or give praise for good deeds and generous support. But lately I am overwhelmed with whine-and-groan letters in my mailbox, not a one of which fails to ask for cash. I can remain silent no longer. Each of them is an affront to common sense.
One Monday morning, there were seven gimme letters in the box, and not a one failed to request cash for a worthy cause. The list of causes grows by the day, I should add. Time was when we could expect these appeals at Thanksgiving and Christmas; now it never stops, although the originality of the senders knows no bounds.
It would appear that the unfortunates in our society have exponentially increased to unbelievable limits, but I propose that the airheads among us have suddenly pretended concern for them with a new dodge to get rich. And meantime our postal system is being compromised. Does anyone know how to fix it?
