Kermit the Frog has hopped onto a U.S. postage stamp

The green leader of the beloved Muppets troupe was on hand Wednesday for a first-day issue ceremony featuring 11 postage stamps honoring the Muppets and late creator Jim Henson at the Academy of Television Arts & Sciences in suburban North Hollywood.

"On behalf of the Muppets, it is a great honor to be featured on our own set of stamps," Kermit said through a human intermediary. Henson, Kermit, Miss Piggy, the Swedish Chef, and Dr. Bunson Honeydew and his assistant Beaker are among the puppets honored in the Postal Service set. The 37-cent stamps will be released nationally on Thursday, reports the AP. I.L.

On December 10, 1948 the Universal Declaration of Human Rights was adopted by the United Nations General Assembly, its thirty articles enshrining basic and fundamental rights guaranteeing dignity of the human person and equality for all, regardless of race, color, creed or gender. A pipe dream?
