    Pretty rare these days that somebody insists on sending stuff via snail mail, particularly when they want somebody to start ASAP.

    That is pretty odd, isn't it?

    As is the application deadline of a month hence when they want someone now, apparently.

    I'll drive it up to Richmond myself. It'll give me an excuse to hit the Capital Ale House afterwards.
