I vote for an evolutionary-speeding-up
in Etiquette (with apologies to Emily Post)
so that it is proper to send a thank-you note
via e'mail. Don't get me wrong -- I'm all in favor
of mail via paper and stamps, especially
hand-written cards. But. Who among us enjoys
writing thank-you notes in bulk? Have you
ever heard anyone say, "Man, I just can't wait
to get home and write twenty thank-you notes!
Hoo ha! Great fun! Break out the confetti
and noise makers!"
I'm just sayin'.
