How many years did it take Elvis to appear posthumously on a stamp? 16.

No, I'm pretty sure he's going on the dollar bill first, by next week at the latest.

This could not have been in Saratoga...the dude up here is so engaged that he would have been calling the Postmaster General of the US (if there is such a thing) to put the request in! Then he would have asked you if you wanted a roll of stamps for the office.
