New postage stamp to honor the living. Who do you suggest?

WASHINGTON (AP) - The Postal Service is asking Americans for suggestions on who should be the first living person to be honored on a U.S. postage stamp.

Until now, a person has to have been dead for five years before appearing on a stamp.

The post office has been facing severe financial problems, and a boost in stamp collecting would mean additional revenue.
