Inqlings: Letter-perfect honor for Kate Smith
By Michael Klein

The Flyers stuck by singer Kate Smith, and now the team is in line to host the unveiling of a Kate Smith stamp. 
The U.S. Postal Service says plans are being worked out for a ceremony at the Kate Smith statue outside the Spectrum. Her rendition of "God Bless America" has been the Flyers' good-luck charm: The team carries a 80-21-4 record when her recording is played before games. 
The ceremony is penciled in for 1 p.m. May 19. Just after 1 p.m. May 19, 1974, Smith rattled the rafters live at the Spectrum before the deciding Game 6 of the Stanley Cup Finals, when the Flyers beat the Boston Bruins. Smith died in 1986. 
The USPS will release the stamp on May 27 - by sheer coincidence, 35 years to the day that the Flyers won their second Cup.
The New Busy think 9 to 5 is a cute idea. Combine multiple calendars with Hotmail.
