The mail isn’t that slow.
The postcard pictured at right arrived in today’s mail. Flipping it over, I found two photos, each with a brief bio. According to the bios, one “newest associate” joined the firm in 2006. The other joined in 2005. Either this card spent years lost in the mail or someone is a little slow getting out the news. (In an uncommon fit of mercy or restraint or discretion or whatever, I masked the architectural firm’s name and logo.)
