Mark Evanier has a wonderful idea.
The late Jack Benny always claimed to be 39 years old. The U.S. Postal Service is about to raise the price of first-class postage to 39 cents. Don't you think there ought to be a 39-cent Jack Benny stamp? Of course there should be a 39-cent Jack Benny stamp.

He's right, and if you go to his blog, there's a link to a petition you can sign. I did; Benny is one of my favorites. As Fred Allen (another) said:

"I didn't mind that he kept his money in a wildcat's mouth. But he was snide enough to find one with lockjaw."
