Is being radical intrinsic to mail art, since it's a medium that's ephemeral and often dismissed?

Hi SaraMarie,

I'm glad you got your 'junk'. Right here, beside me, I have a little square packet for you that will go out tomorrow. It contains all you sent me, plus a tiny bit more of necessary bits, such as 1 staple.  I hope you get a giggle out of it.  --Linda

SaraMarie, I laughed when I received "ze kit of ze junk" today. I love the bits of trash, and can hardly wait to tear in to them.  Thank you!  --Linda
