 From "Stamping Our History: The Story of the United States Portrayed on
its Postage Stamps", by Charles Davidson and Lincoln Diamant (a Lyle Stuart
Book, Carol Publishing Group, New York, 1990), p. xi:

<<(Each year, more than 75 tons of those minuscule punched-out wastepaper
dots---called "chad"---fuel a special boiler at the Treasury Department's
Bureau of Engraving and Printing.)>>
