Though he has not worked here in this century, former S-R reporter Jess Walter, now an acclaimed novelist, still gets mail at the newspaper.
The Slice has noted this before.
"He gets more mail here than I do," said his brother Ralph, a talented S-R page designer.
The latest piece of mail sent to Jess here at the paper is a brochure for the "2013 Four Directions/Tree of Healing Conference on Spiritual, Emotional, Intellectual, and Physical Healing and Addictions Awareness."
The Oct. 1-4 event is to take place at Northern Quest Resort in Airway Heights.
The return address is the Evergreen Council on Problem Gambling in Olympia.
