I’ve always wondered if Benjamin Franklin got the idea for the postal service after his kite got hit by that lightning bolt.
Whatever the case, it was a good one.
Plenty of us regularly e-mail our friends.
But I wonder, too, how much e-mail has impacted the postal service. If we weren’t communicating via e-mail, we might be sending more post cards.
I’m old enough to remember penny post cards, 3-cent stamps and those special six-centers for air mail delivery.
Along Chesterfield Avenue, the mailman came by twice each day.
