Over on the Facebook page for the Dead Letters book, Steven Marcus and various folks from the GDTS office are telling tales from the old days. The time the FBI came to the post office and took away all the envelopes because they were convinced Drug Dealing Through The Mail was happening. Etc. Come on down and check it out. Ask questions. Maybe even help us identify mystery artists!
My wife found this animated video to Dylan's Little Drummer Boy on Amazon. If you haven't heard his Christmas CD yet, it's good, & all proceeds in the U.S. go to the charity Feeding America.
