Lady Luck Liberty

by John J. Miller

Your Post Office at work:

The United States Postal Service has issued a new stamp featuring the Statue of Liberty. Only the statue it features is not the one in the harbor, but the replica at the New York-New York casino in Las Vegas. …

But the post office is going with it.

“We still love the stamp design and would have selected this photograph anyway,” said Roy Betts, a spokesman. Mr. Betts did say, however, that the post office regrets the error and is “re-examining our processes to prevent this situation from happening in the future.”

Oh, the metaphoric possibilities, as the federal government cashes in a heritage of freedom and gambles with our fiscal future.
