Time to get back to the Resistance! I’m catching up my postcards. I love the postcarding phenomenon. It feels so old-fashioned (and maybe occasionally pointless?), but still mildly addictive. This weekend’s efforts:
To a bunch of economists:
Almost 1,500 economists, including a few Nobel Laureates, signed a letter to Congress and the White House explaining how immigration is critical and beneficial to our economy. The letter was organized by the New American Economy, so the postcard is addressed to them.

To the editor of a fearless trashy magazine:
Elaine Welteroth is the editor of Teen Vogue. This magazine – targeted to young women – doggedly publishes works of piercing cultural commentary, despite the predictable backlash. This postcard thanks Welteroth for supporting fearless journalism.

To a scientist:
Michael E. Mann is a climate scientist. He provided testimony at a recent (hostile) hearing on climate change held by the House Committee on Science, Space, and Technology. “Mann knew participating would draw critics from all sides, from the right seeking to undermine his work, and from the left, arguing that his presence legitimized the proceedings. Mann went anyway, because he believes that rebutting misinformation at every turn is the only way to combat climate change denial.” He gets a postcard.
