Programming Note: My paying job requires travel, and I’ve been on the East and West Coasts in the past few weeks. The travel put writing on hold for a bit, but I am now back to a regular schedule for a few weeks. When I left politics in 2015, I became the Executive Director of an international non-profit membership organization for stamp collectors. At some point, I will share the 2016 recovery of an Inverted Jenny stamp stolen in 1955. For non-collectors, it’s an upside-down airplane stamp and one of the most well-known stamps in American history. But for now, let’s discuss the intersection of politics and stamps.
