Mike Hailwood? Why, I thought that Matt Mladin was the greatest all time motorcyclist!



The Isle of Man issues a Mike Hailwood stamp.



The USPS gives us boring Harleys and..... Distinguished American Diplomats! Yes! Household names for sure. Hiram Bingham IV! Frances E. Willis! Giants of history whose names will live forever!

From the USPS website: "Since the posthumous discovery of his humanitarian activities during the 1980s and 1990s, Bingham has been recognized by the United Nations(!!!!), and in June 2002 he was honored by the American Foreign Service Association(!!!!) with a special award for 'constructive dissent.' "



Can't beat that, Bro!



Except maybe the guy that solved the "type of table" debate that torpedoed the US-NVA peace talks for so long.

Constructive dissent is code for "he hated America."

Will the Suzuki M109 commemorative stamp and coin be coming out soon? I would buy up all those in a hot minute.
