Just as my neighbor was about to mail this letter to the TRAFFIC VIOlATIONS PlEA UNIT, I noticed several violations of his own! The first two lowercase L's in VIOlATIONS and PlEA are not so offensive, since the lowercase L is slightly taller than the other letters, and some of the i's are lowercase and dotted to balance things out. But take a look at AlBANY. Folks, this is the reason we have ZIP codes. Otherwise some poor mailman would be driving around for days on end, looking for Aibany, New York, only to grow frustrated go postal on you, ultimately leaving your letter undelivered, and your fine doubled. How you gonna' talk yourself out of that ticket, my friendly neighbor?
