More than my displeasure at the rising costs of postage over the years is my sadness/amazement as to the postmaster general's refusal to honor Laurel and Hardy on a postage stamp ("The Pictures on Our Postal Stamps" by Betty Cuniberti, Aug. 23).
In my opinion, lesser individuals have been so honored, and during the hard times of the Great Depression in America, these two comic "geniuses" brought laughs to people (those fortunate enough to have the admission . . . ) during a period when laughs were "very" difficult/impossible? to achieve!
