Living people on a stamp? I nominate Phyllis Schlafly!

Apparently in a furtive effort to save the Postal Service, they have removed the restriction on living persons being on postage stamps.  I suppose I should protest – more opportunity for nonsense if we remove the ban:  Kim and Khloe on a stamp in all their curvy glory?  (On second thought, that might indeed save the USPS but the crowd of preteen and teenage boys might overwhelm the ability of the post offices to serve!)  Of course Kim and Khloe might be preferable to the notorious communist Paul Robeson being placed on a postage stamp!

So I hereby suggest we nominate the great heroine of the social conservative movement:  Phyllis Schlafly.

When I was a teenager, it looked like the ERA would become the law of the land.  Do you remember, readers who are close to my age:

bullet Section 1. Equality of rights under the law shall not be denied or abridged by the United States or by any state on account of sex.
bullet Section 2. The Congress shall have the power to enforce, by appropriate legislation, the provisions of this article.
bullet Section 3. This amendment shall take effect two years after the date of ratification.    

Need I say more how pernicious that language would have been in our Constitution?  Social Engineering by liberals and courts would have been the law of the land.  It certainly looked bad for a while:
