Here's another good thing about writing actual letters: you might get a return letter. Imagine my excitement when I opened my mailbox and saw an elegant, creamy envelope with this return address:
The White House
Washington, DC 20500
Yup. Obama wrote me back!
He thanked me for my kind words and acknowledged the outpouring of goodwill. He also encouraged me to 'reaffirm our enduring spirit and choose our better history. All right then!
I am going to write a letter back and compliment his expertise in this enormous change effort. He must have some extremely good organization development consultants working with him.
I think the signature might not be original. But, I understand. He's a busy man.
