    At least so it would seem, once upon a time in the US. If NBC's Olympic coverage is accurate, championship athletes have had stamps to honor them, while still alive, and even still competing.

    Ergo, since Jobs was a prima ballerina in the douche arena for decades, he earns a stamp on multiple fronts! (Am I allowed to say that)?

    I tell you, it's enough to make you want to pay ALL you bills online, and just stop buying stamps altogether.

    Great. Now Apple will sue the USPS for patent or trademark or copyright infringement.
