Uh oh, this photo is a little blurry. Here's the thing, Cardiss Collins is a person who served in the House Of Representatives from 1973 - 1997. Also, she had a husband named George. The most important thing though, is that the post office that is open until midnight here in Chicago is named after her. THE CARDISS COLLINS POST OFFICE IS OPEN UNTIL MIDNIGHT. Do you know who goes to the post office at 11pm? Really lonely people. Once a clerk at the post office was rather mean to me, so I looked at her screen and thought her name was Cardiss Collins and decided to go home and fire off a rowdy missive to the Postmaster General. Upon searching the name, I was overcome with joy to find that Cardiss Collins published a recipe for tapioca pudding in the late 70s that I made and ate and loved. This is a true story!

I am sorry that this photo is blurry. Also, if you order this painting, it won't have all of those lumps on it like this one. The one pictured here now hangs at the post office.
