Dear People,

Why is there no U.S. postage stamp honoring Rod Serling? He deserves one.

In 1999, the U.S. Postal Service honored so many cultural icons from the 20th Century, yet issued nothing comemorating the writer who redefined fantasy: Rod Serling.

"Television's last angry man" set standards that many of today's writers will never meet. From "Requiem for a Heavyweight" and "Patterns" through "The Twilight Zone" and "Night Gallery" to "Seven Days in May" and "Planet of the Apes," Rod Serling's stories taught a generation to question society's tired conventions.

"The Twilight Zone" won repeated awards and bridged America's journey from the paranoid Fifties to the psychedelic Sixties. You're probably recalling the show's eerie theme music right now.

How's THAT for cultural clout?

Please consider issuing a Rod Serling postage stamp.

Thank you for your consideration.

Dear USPS Customer Care,

Please forward this email to Citizen's Stamp Advisory Committee:

I request a first class postage stamp commemorating the great writer Rod Serling. 1999 is exactly forty years after "The Twilight Zone" premiered on Television. Television would never be the same. Neither would this country.

Please consider issuing a Rod Serling U.S. postage stamp.

Sincerely,

Please commemorate the great writer Rod Serling with a U.S. Postage stamp. His teleplays and movie scripts helped define and explain American culture as it moved from the 1950s into the 1960s.

Even if you've never seen "Twilight Zone," you probably know about it, and you can hear its eerie theme music right now. Now THAT is cultural clout!

Please consider issuing a Rod Serling U.S. postage stamp.

Thank you.
