Seen this news link about a printed but not disturbed for sale recent US set of stamps. Is it only me but would think that all reviews would have been done and signed off on BEFORE printing was actually done.

Quite agree, they are not pretty but are we mollycoddling the children too much. Most of us survived without riding helmets for bikes, knee pads and all the other gear that now seems compulsory, whatever the sport or pastime. I guess those that didn't survive might disagree.
Going now to put on my safety glasses and Nitrile gloves to soak some stamps, better put my hard hat on in case I trip on the carpet.

If those things raise red flags, I don't know what will not raise red flags I Don't Want To See

What safety equipment would be required to play tag? Rolling On The Floor Laughing

I think we have to find a medium between "caution" and "over protection" for our children. Kids will be kids, and we cannot put them in plastic bubbles until they are adults, but at the same time, it is our duty to learn from our mistakes (as youths, if we can remember that far back) and make every effort to insure their safety. The biggest risk takers among our youth are young males between the ages of 18 and 25 (ask a professional insurance risk analyst) and, if you have ever tried to reason with a young man in that age group, you'll know that you are not going to force the issue by posing proper pictures on stamps!

Bobby,
Why would you wait until they adults to put them in plastic bubbles? Isn't that like closing the barn door after the horses have escaped? You folks down east do things a lot different than the rest of the country! Rolling On The Floor Laughing

I agree an ugly stamp. And I also agree that they shouldn't of been printed before everything was in check.

re: You would think that all reviews would be done BEFORE printing

As for printing a review prior to issuance, friends, that is the New York Post, which had become something of a rag even before Murdoch bought in. I suppose other newspapers write reviews based on some re-issue news letter from the USPS and we should be glad that they managed to slip any philatelic note in betwixt the usual murder, rape, blood and gore with which they usually fill their pages.


As for the stamp, perhaps we should start an "Ugly Beauty" contest to counter the ever popular "Favorite Stamp" themed threads. Every entry should at least turn the viewer back to this one and make him, or her, think, well it really isn't so bad after all.

As to the continual attempts to protect our children and each other from every imaginable possibility of harm or hurt feelings, you can put the blame on our overly litigious society where people engage lawyers to sue, especially those with perceived deep pockets for every bump and bruise, even when the actual cause is ignorance squared.
