Ugly Stamps

I saw a couple of really ugly stamps last night at work. The U.S. Postal Service has a policy that requires people to be dead for ten years before being commemorated on a stamp (The "Heroes" stamp after 9/11 with the living firefighters was the rare exception to the rule). It's too bad that other countries have more lax policies, because this leads to just about any jug-eared crown prince and his horsey bride ending up on the royal postage stamps. Ugh.
