The US Postal Service has always followed a rule that in order for a person's face to be featured on a postage stamp, he or she must have deceased 5-10 years prior. With the USPS on verge of default, it has changed its policy, hoping to raise its profits. Living people are now eligible to be featured on stamps. While I'd love to send my grandma a birthday card with a winning photo of Charlie Sheen in the top right corner, it seems as if my dreams of Harry Caray postage stamps have an even slimmer chance.
