And after this post John H. Johnson Recognized with Black Heritage Stamp – Black Enterprise. I was excited enough to drop a thought :) I actually do have a couple of questions for you if it’s okay.

    THE HERITAGE POSTAL STAMP FOR EBONY-JET PUBICATIONS CEO JOHN H. JOHNSON IS A FITTING TRIBUTE. I RECENTLY PURCHASE A UNITED STATES COMMEMRATIVE STAMP BEARING FORMER TEXAS REPRESENTITIVE BABARA JORDAN’S NAME. SHE AND MR. JOHNSON HAVE DONE WELL FOR AMERICAN SOCIETY AND BEEN A PERSONAL ASSET TO THEIR PEOPLE. THEY WOULD BE PROUD TO SEE BLACK ENTERPRISE MAGAZINE EDITION OF INVESTING IN A GLOBAL POST OFFICE WHOSE LETTERS MAY BEAR THEIR STAMPED LIKENESS. THE POST OFFICE IS THE NETHERLANDS TNT N.V. (TNTEY.PK) AND THEIR LISTING ON THE UNITED STATES PINK SHEETS OF THE NEW YORK STOCK EXCHANGE (NYX). THESE STAMPS WE RECEIVE
    CARRY A HISTORICAL CONTRIBUTION SIGNIFICANT TO THEM. AND RECEIVE THE SUPPORT OF DOMESTIC AND GLOBAL COURRIER SERVICES LIKE UPS (UPS) WHO ALSO FRANCHISES MAIL DELIVERY PACKAGING. FEDERAL EXPRESS (FDX) ANOTHER GLOBAL
    COURRIER SERVICES WHICH RIVALS THE “MEAN SET OF WHEELS” BRANDED UPS IN OVERNIGHT DELIVERY. C.H. ROBINSON OUT OF MINNESOTA IS ALSO A INTERNATION FREIGHT COURRIER WITH ITS LOGISTIC BOEING (BA) AND AIRBUS (EADSF.PK) AIRPLANES TO CATER ALL OF THE WORLD’S LEADING POST OFFICES. THESE COURRIERS PROVIDE A LOT OF BUSINESS TO FORESTRY WORLD OF INTERNATIONAL PAPER (IP), WEYERHAUSER (WY), AND XEROX PAPER (XRX). THE PROCESSING OF ALL THE PAPER FROM MAIL SERVICES IS QUITE A BIT OF WORK. BEST WELL WORTH IT WHEN YOU SEE COMMERATIVE STAMPS WHICH BEAR A LEGEND LIKE JOHN H. JOHNSON’S STAMP OF APPROVAL ON IT.
