Ever since the anthrax scare, letters in envelopes to the House or Senate have to go through a lengthy screening process, delaying arrival to the recipient by a matter of weeks rather than days. For this reason, it’s recommended to use postcards when sending handwritten missives.

2. Buy some blank postcards. There are various options for buying these. For example, I plan
to order 50 blank cards for $8.95 from Amazon.
That's all, folks!
