Need postage? Green Lantern's on the case!

Seems to me that if Hal Jordan really needs a stamp that badly, there must be an easier way to get one than the following approach. (Plus -- Hey, is it just me, or does the power beam that Hal's using as a speech translator look yellow?):

Oh, no! The little old lady doesn't have a stamp! What's a Green Lantern to do?
Apparently, asking someone else for help, or merely going to the post office, is completely out of the question. Hey, any excuse to use that power ring again:

So, Hal's gonna probe someone's mind just to find a lousy postage stamp? Gee, I always get stamps at the local supermarket. Can't say I've ever had this amount of trouble -- or felt the need to probe someone's mind -- just to get a postage stamp.

I'd hate to see what Hal must go through when postage rates go up. Better stock up on "forever" stamps, Hal!

Don't you have some aliens to chase or something?

It's all a clever ruse. Hal doesn't REALLY need a stamp. He just wants to probe someone.

Oh Hal. As you can see, he even had to go to a different country, just so as not to get caught.

Wait a sec... Wasn't Hal against the whole "Mindwipe the Villains" thing in that first Crisis thing?

If there had been probing involved, then Hal would have been all for the mindwiping.
