USPS rejects Jack Kerouac stamp idea

Back on July 8 I attempted to rally support for a Jack Kerouac postage stamp. Click here for my original post.

This week I heard from the U.S. Postal Service. The news is not good, although they do suggest looking into a "pictorial or souvenir cancellation." I will look into that. I have a sneaking suspicion that, at least at our little podunk post office, the response will be, "What?"

Here's the bad news letter from the USPS. I redacted my mailing address to avoid the millions of letters that would otherwise be forthcoming.

Sorry, Jack. I tried.
