The U.S. Postal Service has dedicated its new Henry David Thoreau postage stamp at a ceremony at Walden Pond, where the 19th century American philosopher and naturalist spent two years in solitude and reflection.
In Downtown Wilmington, a ceremony was held to celebrate an area native being selected to be on the US stamp. Robert Robinson Taylor was the first formally educated black architect in America, studying at MIT in the late 1800's.
Beginning in January, all new postage stamps good for one ounce of first-class mail will be marked as "forever." The US Postal Service is doing away with issuing first-class stamps with denominations.
It is going to cost you more to use snail mail. Monday, the cost of a stamp goes up from 42 to 44 cents. Forever Stamps will still work, even if you bought them at the lower rate.
