Interesting Postal Trick
A man in exile living in Italy is doing his part to bring down the Soviet economy. The man who calls himself Boris, writes a letter every week to a Soviet dissident and insures it for $400. Since the Soviets never deliver letters to dissidents. Italian postal authorities reimburse Boris, then send the bill to Moscow, which must pay up or be kicked out of the International Postal Union. Boris says he makes $20,000 a year writing the letters. If
everyone used his trick, he says, the Soviet economy would collapse.
