Perhaps it is perverseness or ignorance that motivates this response,
I have sort of a thing about the US Postal Service, and I definitely
DON'T put it beyond them to use the sensitive subject of breast cancer
to suck us up into a higher stamp bracket (getting us ready for things
to come). Sorry, but I'd rather recognize and give to this cause
through another agency / method / scenario. Anyone who feels like
further educating me, I'll be glad to listen. So far, I do NOT trust
the US Postal Service on their own merits, no matter the cause to which
