July 31, 2016: The USPS issued a forever 3-ounce first class postage stamp (currently 89¢) honoring Henry James (1843 – 1916), an American-born writer. He is regarded as one of the key figures of 19th-century literary realism. He is best known for a number of novels showing Americans encountering Europe and Europeans. His method of writing from a character's point of view allowed him to explore issues related to consciousness and perception, and his style in later works has been compared to impressionist painting. His imaginative use of point of view, interior monologue and unreliable narrators brought a new depth to narrative fiction. (wikipedia) (posted September 6, 2016)

July 13, 2016: The USPS issued a forever (currently 47¢) postage stamp honoring famed educator James Escalante (1930-2010). Escalante, who gained fame as a teacher at Garfield High School in Los Angeles in the 1980s, taught at Hiram Johnson High School in Sacramento from 1992 to 1998, where he demanded excellence from his students. A Bolivian immigrant, Escalante taught at Garfield High from 1974 to 1991, building a first-class math program. In 1982, 18 of his students took the advanced placement calculus exam and passed. Controversy followed when the testing service accused 14 of the students of cheating. Escalante suspected that the accusation was due to the fact that the students were Mexican Americans from a low-income area of Los Angeles. The testing service denied the allegation and proposed that the 14 students retake the test. Twelve of the 14 took a different exam from the first and all passed. When the story broke in the fall of 1982, Escalante and his students attracted the attention of Hollywood producer Tom Musca and director Ramón Menéndez, leading to the 1988 movie “Stand and Deliver,” starring Edward James Olmos."
