UPC: Urge the United States Postal Service not to Endorse KFC’s Cruelty!

November 2nd, 2006 6:12 pm by Kelly Garbato

Via United Poultry Concerns:

KFC has recently petitioned the United States Postal Service (USPS) to create a postage stamp commemorating Colonel Sanders. Since the Colonel’s legacy includes breeding and drugging chickens to grow so large that they suffer painful diseases and broken bones, slitting their throats while they’re still conscious and dropping them into tanks of scalding-hot water, please tell the USPS that to commemorate him is to endorse cruelty to animals – something Americans oppose.

Please fill out the USPS’ Customer Service Form to let Postmaster General John Potter know that you do not want to see a stamp commemorating cruel Colonel Sanders. […]

You can also call, write or fax the USPS:

The Honorable John E. Potter
CEO and Postmaster General
United States Postal Service
475 L’Enfant Plaza, SW
Washington, DC 20260

Phone: (800) 275-8777
Fax: (303) 574-9650

Additional talking points are available at KFC Cruelty.

FYI: When I wrote the USPS using the online feedback form, I was advised to address my complaint to the following department:

CITIZENS STAMP ADVISORY COMMITTEE
C/O STAMP DEVELOPMENT
US POSTAL SERVICE
475 L’ENFANT PLAZA SW RM 5670
WASHINGTON DC 20260-2437

No fax/phone number was included. (My cynical side says that this is an obvious attempt for the Postal Service to drum up extra business – why else require printed letters when digital ones would do?)
