Going underground and back in time with postal icons

 
An entrance to Kansas City's unusual headquarters for U.S. stamp distribution (left) is reminiscent of a caped crusader's secret cave. The Postal Service's logos and seals have seen a few changes over the past couple of centuries; four, including the oldest and newest, are shown here (right).

This edition goes underground -- literally -- to the unique home for the Postal Service's Stamp Distribution Services center in Missouri. Next, you'll travel through time with a look at how the Postal Service's corporate logo has evolved over the years, with help from a postal historian.

You'll also hear a brief roundup of the latest postal news and learn how you can enter to win a collectible stamp item.
