Scanning my FB this morning for family and distant acquaintance updates, I came across this pic and its accompanying "PEOPLE MAILED BABIES" story.

"Off to snopes, Poppet," I thought. And lo, the truth.

But I will add, I find postal history roundly fascinating and philately, itself, to be such a delightful subsector in the minutia of history. One could spend a lifetime studying a single decade of an imperialist power.
