Randall Sherman, secretary of the Chicago Philatelic Society, recently posted a message over at the Virtual Stamp Club in which he reports, " Believe it or not there is a serious drive underway to get the U.S. Postal Service to issue a commemorative stamp honoring MAD Magazine icon Alfred E. Neuman."

According to the Tampa [Florida] Tribune the drive is led by a local physician, Dr. David Lubin.

Sherman adds in his post, "It should be noted that the USPS will be issuing 10 stamps next year to honor various DC Comics superheroes, and that DC Comics, like Mad Magazine, is currently a part of the Time Warner corporate empire."
