There have been three of them reported in recent months. U.S. Mail classic blue boxes disappearing into thin air. Or would that be cyberspace?
A box near Gateways Hospital, a box on Baxter and Echo Park Avenue, another at Lemoyne and Park. One person on an Echo Park list serv posted that she was told each box must receive at least 25 pieces of stamped mail each day to justify itself. One single missive of heartbreak and woe -- or even ten -- are not worth the time it takes to stop and load them. I suppose I haven't been helping the cause of the blue drop box. I used to leave my mail on my own mail slot for pickup. After I had mail stolen (incoming delivery) from my box, I altered my habit. Now I usually drop it at the perilously positioned post office driveby box on Alvarado. Looks like it'll be getting busier over there.
