Non-specific postal addresses

Sam links to a story of Neil Gaiman’s about how he once received a letter addressed to “The author Neil Gaiman. Lives in a big house of uncertain location in Minnesota USA”. Bill Bryson apparently once received a letter addressed to “Bill Bryson, Writer, Yorkshire Dales”, which proves that both the Royal Mail and the US Postal Service can sometimes act above and beyond the call of duty. Better still, the DJ Dave Lee Travis once had a letter addressed to “DLT, London, England”, which is even more impressive. So why is it that half the stuff I send gets lost in the post, eh? ——-
