    Twenty years after his death, jazz legend Miles Davis will be honored by the U.S. Postal Service with his own stamp. Forget email for a second, and mail a letter.

    According to Rolling Stone, Davis will be immortalized in a collection of musically-themed stamps that will also honor the singer Edith Piaf. They will be released in partnership with the French postal service, La Poste. Remember, Marion Cotilliard won an Oscar for her portrayal of the singer Piaf in Le Vie En Rose.
