New Ronald Reagan Postage Stamp.

The United States Postal Service has released its first-ever Ronald Reagan stamp:

Very nice.

This might have been even nicer:

Grover Norquist's organization, Americans for Tax Reform, hopes to one day see Ronald Reagan on the ten dollar bill. The Ronald Reagan Legacy Project makes some interesting comparisons:

"President John Fitzgerald Kennedy • 600 items have been dedicated to the memory of JFK as of 2003. Estimates indicate another 50-100 additional Memorials have been added since....

Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.
• 800 items have been dedicated to the memory of MLK, Jr. as of 1998. Estimates indicate another 150-250 additional Memorials have been added since....

As a key figure and hero of the 20th Century, President Reagan must receive parity in Memoriam to President Kennedy and Dr. King. Now that President Reagan has died, it is even more fitting to begin the process of commemorating his achievements in economics, human rights and American power. Dedications to this great American must be expedited, bringing his memorials to a level consistent with his fellow heroes of the 20th century."

It seems totally reasonable that Ronald Reagan should be on the 10 dollar bill. Why not?

UPDATE: Representative John "from Texas" Kline of Minnesota has introduced a bill to put Reagan on the $50 bill. In Minnesota in 2002, the negative ads against John Kline featured a big map of Texas, with a sinister-sounding voice: "John Kline, from Texas..." (because he was born in Texas).

Kline, incidentally, carried the "football," the briefcase within which the president can fire nuclear weapons, for President Reagan.

Bravo to John Kline for bringing this up. Grant, the current occupant of the fifty-slot, was a good general and below average president, at best. Reagan was one of the greatest presidents America has ever had.
