Need a stamp? Because they're selling 'em at the University of Texas at Dallas tomorrow -- specifically, the brand-new Gerald Ford 41-cent'er that makes its bow on Friday with special ceremonies only at UTD, the Gerald R. Ford Presidential Library in Grand Rapids, Michigan, and at Ford's former home in Rancho Mirage, California. Seems this kind of thing happens every so often at UTD, where its Wineburgh Philatelic Research Library is a major player among stamp collectors. Says the university's release, this marks the third time "the special collection library has been chosen for a stamp dedication," so lucky. The shindig's at 2:30; bring your tongues. And somebody please invite Jim Schutze to read this. --Robert Wilonsky
