Just announced today are the following USPS postal rate changes:

While the increases are modest, and the Forever stamps will be unchanged (just a higher price when the new rates take effect) it will prompt the need for many new stamps and postal stationery items, including a 32-cent postal card, an 85-cent stamp for letters to Canada and Mexico and a $1.05 stamp for letters to other international destinations.

Just as we thought the stamp program for 2011 was coming to a close, I guess we stamp collectors need to be prepared for a host of new stamp issues coming out within the next 90 days.

Do they really think the penny is going to solve their problem ? Speaking from personal experience I would put an S.O.B. like Lou Gerstner in charge for 18 months...he turned IBM around without mercy..cut 1/3 the work force but sure made the stockholders happy campers !!
