MY KINGDOM FOR A 3 cents STAMP

AS OF JAN. 1, THAT OLD 29 cents stamp won't fly anymore--at least, not without a 3 cents stamp beside it. But finding 3 cents stamps isn't easy: Thousands of customers, especially in cities such as Washington and New York, can't get their hands on them. Even when they're in stock, customers complain about long lines. The Postal Service, which printed more than 2 billion of the stamps in anticipation of the rate increase, says it expects the shortage to ease during the next few weeks.EDITED BY KEITH H. HAMMONDS
