Postage Stamps To Honor The Living

As part of its desperate attempt to save itself from bankruptcy, the U.S. Postal Service announced yesterday that it will throw out its ban on putting living people's pictures on stamps. The postal service is accepting suggestions for people who should be honored with a stamp, and Lady Gaga, Steve Jobs, Bill Gates and Bob Dylan are among the most popular. Collectors are concerned that this will cheapen the honor, but we're all for more entertaining stamps. We may not use them often, but busting out the angry Maggie Simpson stamp is a fine way to express your displeasure while mailing in a traffic ticket.
