is there a philatelist in the house? or a Postal worker?

2 posts / 0 new

this is something i guess a philatelist or a postal worker would know; but I was just paying bills, and peeled-off a "forever" postage stamp from a 20-stamp package. I noticed the front of the little fold-over package has a great big stamp, looks like a bigger version of the stamp; it even peels off like the actual stamps. Naturally, I thought to myself: "Can you use these for stamps? Have I been throwing away perfectly good stamps all this time? At least the big stamps outta work on packages, right?

I figure I'll ask the post office person next time I go, but in case I forget, do any of ya'll happen to know?
I know its a sticky subject. You have to adhere to many rules... It just takes stick-to-it-ive-ness... thanx!

I think size does matter.

The Death of the Middle Class was by Design...

Even in the face of the so-called Recovery, poverty and inequality are getting worse in our country, and more wealth and power is flowing straight to the top. According to Paul Buchheit over at Alternet, this is the end result of winner-take-all capitalism, and this destruction of the working class has all been by design.
