In the debate over what sorts of services the Us Post Office should be providing Harry Reid stated:

“And, talking about seniors — Seniors LOVE to get junk mail. It’s sometimes their only way of communicating or feeling they’re part of the real world.”

Hearing about how much the elderly love mail will always, always make me think of “The Mailbox.” And thinking about ‘The Mailbox’ always fills me with terrible terrible guilt.

Now if you’ll excuse me, I need to go write my mom a letter.

Starfoxy is a fulltime caretaker for her two children.


  1. Lol!! I watched that movie as a kid and just felt AWFUL.

    As for junk mail… when I get elderly, I will still hate it, I am sure.

  2. When my kids were little, I often felt like the mail was the only contact I had with the outside world. I lived for the mail it was like a nice mental break.

    Oh and that movie made me fell bad too.
