Due to the passing of Michael Jackson, the business world will try to capitalize on his fame. The USPS should immediately initiate a semi-postal stamp honoring Michael Jackson with the proceeds going to combat world hunger. The stamp could outsell Elvis. Jody Whiteside, Dixie, WV
note: A lot pf people on the internet are voicing the same request. However, USPS policy is a person must be dead for five years (changed from ten years) before they can be considered for a stamp. The only exception: Presidents of the United States.
