The creative "California pizza" was, by most accounts, invented by Alice Waters at Chez Panisse, perfected by Jeremiah Tower at Stars and turned into a marketing juggernaut by Wolfgang Puck at Spago. But none of these superstar chefs has taken the California pizza so far so fast as two lawyers who always wanted to get into the restaurant business.

These three stamps are part of a set of Haitian stamps printed in 1914. According to the Scott Catalog, a large quantity was stolen while being delivered from the printer, so the stamps were never made available for sale at post offices in Haiti. They feature then President Oreste Zamor. His presidency was short lived. He overthrew his predecessor on Feb. 7, 1914 and in October, he himself was overthrown and ultimately assassinated. From 1911 to 1915, Haiti had six presidents.

This is the first postage stamp Haiti issued. It was printed in 1881 and is imperforated. It featured the "liberty head" on the stamp, very much in the French style of the time. Haiti is a good country to collect because all their stamps are affordable and one could actually complete a full collection. Also, there are many forgeries, so it makes collecting genuine Haitian stamps challenging.
In 1865, The United States issued newspaper stamps that could be used to bulk mail newspapers and periodicals within the United States. This was discontinued in 1898. Here are six newspaper stamps that I picked up recently in New York City. While they may appear quite plain, what is hard to see here is that they are engraved with intricate and small details designed to prevent forgeries.

Johnny Cash Forever Stamp for invites. even matches our colors! #johnnycash
THE JOHNNY CASH STAMP! Yup...I'll be gettin' me some of THESE! The Post Office is releasing a limited edition JOHNNY CASH Forever stamp on June 5th. The stamp resembles a 45 rpm record sleeve, and it features a pic taken during a 1963 photo session for the release of his hits album "Ring of Fire: The Best of Johnny Cash".
Later in the summer of 2013, Johnny Cash will be memorialized by the U.S. Postal Service with his very own stamp, part of a new Music Icons series. His version features a photograph by Frank Bez taken for 1963's "Ring of Fire: The Best of Johnny Cash". Cash's stamp went through an arduous selection process to be issued. "We get about 40,000 suggestions for stamp ideas each year but only about 20 topics make the cut," USPS representative Mark Saunders told Today.com. #South #Southern

Johnny Cash Postage Stamp (about $0.50). Meant to resemble a 45 rpm record sleeve, the stamp features a black-and-white portrait of Cash taken in 1963 during a Frank Bez photo shoot for Ring of Fire: The Best of Johnny Cash. And it's a Forever stamp, so 20 years from now when stamps cost $10 a piece, you can use it and be all "In yo face!" to the local postmaster.

The First Amendment is a beautiful thing.
And here is an interesting bit. This letter was mailed to America from Germany around the time of World War II. As you can see on the right, it was opened and examined. This is often referred to as "Postal Censorship" and is a more common practice than some might think during times of war. Pretty easy to find, not worth much of anything, but sort of interesting none the less.

This stamp is from the Russian Army of the Northwest under General Yudenich. After the overthrow of the Czar in 1917, General Yudenich fled with 17,000 troops to the northwest, where he joined a "Provisional All-Russian Government" to oppose the Bolsheviks. By 1919, he'd pushed the Bolsheviks out, but with no outside support, his army could not sustain, and it disbanded in 1920. General Yudenich settled in exile in France in 1933. This stamp has an inverted overprint, written in Cyrillic.
