"If United Airlines can land a plane in North Korea, almost certainly bearing stamped mail to and from the United States, and if the Bank of America can open branch offices in Pyongyang, then I can surely sell North Korea's stamps to American collectors." -- VSC member Mark Dianda, the North American new-issue agent for North Korean stamps.
