The U.S. Postal Service needs to generate revenue, and I like what they’ve come up with: put a living person, rather than a deceased icon, on a stamp. They’re taking nominations from the public. Good. USPS is thinking like a real business that needs to turn a profit in order to survive. The question is, who will it be? Will USPS resist an attempt to get political or make a liberal social statement? We’ll see. Ultimately, if it were up to me, I’d bid the contract for daily snail mail and allow competition to bring down the cost and increase the service.
