Great first post from needlegrrl, A good handwritten letter is a creative act celebrating April as (US) National Letter Writing Month.

Also see hippybear's Metatalk thread April Showers Bring May Flowers about posting "simply happy, joyous, silly, or positive posts" this month. (Also open to discussion for a May posting theme.)

So one jammed letter would quickly gather many letters, traveling near the speed of sound, into a densely packed arterial blockage ... Guess who found them?
