An article like this does my heart good, being a postcard kind of guy. But of course, receiving them in the mail is definitely a hit-or-miss proposition these electronic days. Postcards are still available and some might take the time and trouble to send them on to their friends, though it's often difficult to find them. It's just too easy to send a text note saying, "having a great time, wish you were here." Or a series of texts (or tweets) throughout your vacation.
