Every gun that is made, every warship launched, every rocket fired signifies, in the final sense, a theft from those who hunger and are not fed, those who are cold and are not clothed. This world in arms is not spending money alone. It is spending the sweat of its laborers, the genius of its scientists, the hopes of its children.

John E. Potter

He is the United States Postmaster General, as of this writing.

I saw something very disturbing the other day. A woman at a festival was wearing a T-Shirt with Senator Obama on it, framed as though he was on a stamp. Now, few people know this, but the rules for getting on a stamp (although there have been exceptions) state that the person must first be DEAD before any consideration for... stamp-hood is applied.

Now, I don't know about you, but I would rather see Senator Obama on a stamp in fifty years or so, rather than a few months. Regardless of his politics.

That's all I wanted to say, today.
