CNN: 49 cents too much for a stamp?

I can remember the days when a 5 cent stamp was more then sufficient to get postcards and letters safely delivered to their destination. Those of you who sigh melancholically and utter the words that those were the good ole days should keep in mind however that at that time 5 cents would probably equate to a quarter at present, if not more.

Either way, how much impact does it have on us nowadays raising the costs of a stamp? The majority of people make use of the Internet to instantly reach someone with the click of a button. It is not entirely free since you pay your Internet provider monthly, but it sure is a lot cheaper especially when you send e-mails by the dozen.

It does matter though; less correspondence will find its way to and through the postal service and it may well be that soon the post office is either a rarity or a thing of the past. It would not be such a bad idea to start collecting stamps. I can foresee how twenty years from now they might be worth a whole lot more then 49 cents.

Collectors could be paying a pretty penny in the future to have these stamps in their possession. So what is paying 49 cents now compared to the possibility of raking in thousands of dollars later?

That option has my stamp of approval!
