Postal Service Issues Mystery Message Forever Stamps

The USPS has released a new postage stamp that appears to be a coded message. Each stamp contains twenty panels that spell out a message. It's not really a code, though, but an artistic font that's easy to decipher if you take the time to see each letter. Appropriately, the dedication ceremony was held at the International Spy Museum in Washington, DC.

“As you add these stamps to your collection, or use them to send a message to your family and friends — we hope they will appeal to the puzzle-solver in all of us,” said Robert M. Duncan, a member of the U.S. Postal Service Board of Governors, who served as dedicating official for the ceremony.

Joining Governor Duncan for the ceremony were Tamara Christian, the Spy Museum’s president and chief operating officer; Rebecca Roberts, curator of programming, Planet Word; and an “international spy” as a special guest.

I had trouble with this at first because I have heard the phrase with the word "what" after "Than". But when I liked it up, the original quote of the phrase doesn't use "what". Learn something new every day.
