New "Forever" Holiday Stamps and Possible Rate Hike

Ed O' Keefe in his Washington Post Federal Eye column reports, "The U.S. Postal Service started issuing its 2010 holiday stamps this week, issuing four Forever stamps and a single stamp featuring a musical angel.The four new Forever stamps feature ponderosa pine, eastern red cedar, blue spruce and balsam fir conifers."

The Angel With Lute represents peace on earth and is from a fresco by Italian Renaissance artist, Melozzo da Forli painted in the 1400s.

Ed also reports, "The price of postage stamps may still increase to 46 cents next year. The U.S. Postal Service plans to appeal a regulator's decision to deny permission to raise rates by 2 cents."
