Going Postal


The Smoking Gun is having some good fun at the expense of the US Postal Service's new personalized stamp program, which allows users to make stamps out of virtually any image. Click here to see valid stamps featuring the Unabomber (as a high school and college student), Jimmy Hoffa, Ethel and Julius Rosenberg, and America's newest sweethearts, New Jersey Gov. James McGreevy and Israeli poet Golan Cipel. (TSG acknowledge that stamps consisting of mug shots of Sammy "The Bull" Gravano, Lee Harvey Oswald, and the Unabomber didn't pass the USPS censors).

TSG's stamp of Monica Lewinsky's stained blue dress, however, breaks no new ground. Back in January 2004, Reason's Jesse Walker talked with artists Michael Thompson and Michael Hernandez de Luna, who have, er, made their mark not only with a Monica stamp but many other similar creations.
