A perennial favorite blog of mine, Forgotten Bookmarks, posted a real gem of epistolary ephemera recently. It's a member card to the Dora Lee Club, which, as far as I can surmise, is a lot like the ads posted on Craigslist or the little blurbs on dating sites. You joined the Chicago-based (!!!) club and got a listing of other "lonely" member names and addresses. I found it all a bit sweet and sad and funny, and, heck, I'll bet there were some people who got some good out of it. At least, I can hope so. It was probably an even trade of horrible to happy if I'm being realistic. (And I almost always am realistic. Check out the video for the book club for Letters to the Lost if you have doubts about my lack of a romantic nature.) You can see excerpts from the list at the Forgotten Bookmarks site.
