When was the last time...

When was the last time someone sent your newspaper clipping in the postal mail? I had this happen to me last week. While reading a New York Times article about SSN's and peoples identities, a Sun colleague (past manager) took the time to cut out an article, fold it up, stick it on an envelope, address the envelope, put a stamp on it and send it to me over the Postal Mail. First of all, it's nice to see that there are others out there that still read traditional print media.
But more importantly, when I received this, it had a much higher level of importance. It wasn't just another forward of a URL that I filed away in some mail folder. This person had made an effort to send me some info and that effort increased the level of importance on that information.
For those interested in the article, here's the URL. ;-)
