Other People Exist

and are not just sense data

Studies show that even when they are not there, other people exist, with thoughts, feelings, and desires just like you


The announcement by the Postmaster that Saturday mail delivery may soon be suspended was a shock for those in the zinemaking community, as well as for postal enthusiasts, mailman spotters, and anyone who hates change.

What this will mean
Without the arrival of mail to break up the empty purposeless day into two smaller, more manageable periods of emptiness, Saturday will become, like Sunday, another "lost day," when nothing is accomplished and life ceases to have meaning.

What you can do about it
Absolutely nothing. Once every four years, we have the opportunity to vote for president, but in the interim, we have no control over what the federal government does. We can only pray that God exists, that he hears our prayers, and that he stays the hand of Postmaster Patrick R. Donahoe (all unlikely).

The worst part of this tragedy
On weekends when Monday is a federal holiday, there will be no mail for three days (!).

What Saturdays will look like

Perhaps Sunday would be less of a "lost day" if you would sally forth, and do the praying of which you speak in a building unnecessarily constructed for that purpose.

Still working on understanding Pay Pal. Is that person in the blog post pic a Pay Pal consultant?

I always forget to go down for the mail on the weekends, anyway.
