I think I set some sort of record today for junk mail received. Seriously. The thing about the junk mail? Most of it isn't for me. I still receive mail ALMOST EVERY DAY addressed to my parents. Who died over 5 years ago. At first I would write "deceased" on the mail & send it back but it didn't seem to make any difference. Which brings me to the point of this post -- the 9/11 families (yes, I'm going to make the segue from junk mail to 9/11). What I wonder is this: just getting some bullshit junk mail addressed to my parents makes me sad. How do the 9/11 families cope with the loss of a loved one, which is such a private thing, in such a public forum? Not that they would ever forget the anniversary but maybe for once they would like to? Does it make it harder that everyone makes such a big hoopla? With me, a computer generated form letter donation request can make me depressed, how do you cope with every newspaper, tv, and everything else reminding you, reminding you, that today is the anniversary of one of the worse days of your life?

Hi, have you tried www.myletterbox.co.uk it lets you set up what mail you want, hobbies etc and stop what you don't. You can also stop the Royal Mail "door drops" wth it!!

Yeah that's sad! Everyone KNOWS what 9/11 is, its just another way of the media making money and not letting anyone forget it. (not that we could)
