Tis the season...

Why do I feel grumpy this morning over someone's genuine attempt to pass along something nice? I received one of those e-mails; "For each Christmas card you send this year send one to 'A Recovering Soldier c/o Walter Reed Army Medical Center'" Sounds like a great thing. Only, here's the problem.

The U.S. Postal Service will not and can not accept or forward mail addressed to "Any Soldier", "A Recovering Soldier (or Airman, Seaman or Marine)" or any other such greeting. If mail is not addressed to a specific person it is tossed or returned to sender. The reasons are important as the Snopes link above explains.

If you want to do something for the troops please consider the Holiday Mail for Heroes program.

And consider bookmarking Fischer Price does not have a talking doll that says "Satan is King," Verizon Wireless is not donating a dollar to a cancer fund every time you forward a message to seven people and Finland never banned Donald Duck because he doesn't wear pants.
