Yesterday, I received this letter from Senator Jeff Merkley. I've never received a personal letter from a US Senator before. Talk about setting the bar high! The Senator's office sent the letter to the wrong side of the Willamette to a zip code I've never lived in. The envelope arrived in pristine condition. That meant an efficient US Postal Worker, during the Holiday rush, took the time to route the letter back across the river to the correct zip code. He (or she) looked up either my name or the street to accomplish this task. Not only is Senator Merkley supporting the Fulbright, but the Post Office is, too! Senator, I will definitely share my Fulbright with Oregonians, and my mail carrier earned his Holiday bonus this year! I wonder if postal workers pool tips?
