E-mail vs Snail Mail
I'm amazed at the amount of crap mail I receive. It doesn't seem to be limited to my snail mail but also flows over to my e-mail. In a perfect "protect the environment" world, it would all be e-mail. We have the option to receive paperless statements from every bill we receive but what about all the correspondence we don't solicit. If you had the option to receive your "free weekend at one of our dominican republic hotels" or the "promise of a lower mortgage" through e-mail for the sake of our trees, would you? Shouldn't we just be getting rid of all this? It seems like more and more I see "at home opportunities" that are nothing more than mailing out offers that are bogus at best. Now we are getting those in our e-mail boxes without the slowdown of offers delivered by the mail carrier. Should I just be happy they aren't calling me? What crap are you receiving?
