    That letter will never get delivered; there’s no ZIP code.

    If the postman kept this card, he could sell it for a fortune and bask in Acapulco! Now, if Jeff had signed it , the postman’s progeny could have bought up Steve Jobs’ shares and…

    The post office here and elsewhere often go to great lengths to deliver mail. A letter with only a picture of the Playboy bunny for its address made it to the Playboy offices in Chicago; another made it to the MAD Magazine offices in New York with only a picture of Alfred E. Newman taped to it. And during World War I, Albert Einstein in Berlin corresponded with a colleague in Paris about relativity.

    Interesting that almost all of the scientists who developed the atom bomb were Jewish, and most were refugees from Europe. In fact research on the bomb only began in the U. S. when Leo Szilard, Edward Teller and Paul Wigner took their concerns to Albert Einstein about the fact that the Germans had begun nuclear research and may have been on their way to developing an atomic weapon. Unable to have anyone in government take them seriously, they went to Einstein, who signed a letter they wrote and that letter was delivered to President Roosevelt and thus the Manhattan project came about.

    Had the Germans been able to hang on maybe another 6 months and had we not begun our own program, there might not have be a United States today as we know it.

    Recently for the Xmas season the Game Show Network was playing old reruns of the show I’ve Got a Secret, and one episode was about exactly what you mentioned, with numerous examples. One I remember was about a letter from a man in Georgia who wrote to a hotel in Chicago and addressed it to the name you can’t say hotel, and the letter was delivered. The name of the hotel was the Sherman, and apparently that was deduced buy the postal authorities realizing how much Gen. Sherman was reviled in the south, and especially Georgia for the brutal march he made through that state during the Civil War.

    Also I remember a story about the great writer P. G. Wodehouse. When he was in his 90’s he refused to leave his penthouse in New York. When he wanted to mail a letter he would just toss them out the window and hope some kind person would find them in the street and place them in a mailbox.

    That’s because he didn’t have Jeeves to mail it for him.

    It is interesting that although Gen. Sherman is reviled in the south, his tactics probably saved more lives than any other method could have and did definitely shorten the war saving even more lives.
