Guy Steele's story about the delivery to mad magazine reminds me
of an experience I had in China twenty years ago. The postal delivery
people at the university could not read foreign languages or even
roman letters, so whenever they got a letter addressed in something
other than Chinese, they would just bring it to the foreigners' dormitory.
This was not effective since some of the foreigners to whom the mail
was addressed lived elsewhere. Not long after I arrived for a two
week stay, the concierge, who could not read roman letters and spoke no
foreign languages, approached me with a stack of mail and asked me if I
knew where it should go.
