Re: Jim on the radio
Earlier this year I received a letter from the Manager of Stamp Development at the USPS,Krista Becker,on Feb.12,2015,and it said Jim Reeves was being considered for a stamp.I think they don't know that JR was more than just a country artist.The second Elvis stamp is an insult not only to Jim,but to many other worthy artists who have yet to be given this honor.I knew they were also selling it with a CD.There's their real motivation:money.There is even a Harry Potter stamp with the images or a photo of the young British actors from that movie series.I thought the USA didn't put the images of still living persons on postage stamps.I guess that's not the case anymore.I realize they are portraying fictional characters from the films,but their faces are recognizable as still living actors today.Ms.Becker's address is: 475 L'Enfant Plaza SW, Room 3300 Washington,DC 20260-3501 In case you all want to write her your displeasure in this greedy decision.
