    This report gives you a preview of the upcoming release from the US Post Office on http://blog.wired.com/wiredscience/2008/01/us-postal-servi.html". Last time, Richard Fenyman was included in a similar set. This time, I am extremely pleased that John Bardeen is being honored with a stamp. Hopefully, this will make people look up more on what he has done and recognize his contribution to our civilization.

    Ooh! very nice!
    The John Von Neumann stamps were my favorite from the previous set. I think I still have a couple of those.

    A Zapper Z stamp would be good, the artists could go mad.
