We never were able to make much progress in uncovering the brains behind the Postcard Underground after Gary Eichten’s retirement in January, when anonymous (except for first name) postcards started showing up every day.
We have found more examples, however. The Joint Religious Legislative Coalition, for example, got inundated last March. The organization, A Peace of My Mind, got them last summer.
The fact that the postcards arrive in bunches indicate an organized structure but how do they communicate and keep it such a secret?
“Sue” shared no secrets in her postcard which arrived today in response to a NewsCut post last month.
They are clever, these postcarders.
