And this final note. If you're thinking you'd be a good candidate to be featured on a postage stamp -- but don't want to wait until the traditional six-feet-under -- well the U.S. Postal Service has dropped its rule requiring you be dead five years before receiving this particular honor.

They want your suggestions for who should now be featured on stamps. Let's not guess how many folks will nominate themselves.
