In response to the picture going around: We've had Muslim stamps since 2001. President Obama had nothing to do with it, unless by the same logic, President Bush issued it the first time. (He didn't) It's pretty. Buy it if you want, don't buy it if you don't want to. I only buy stamps 2 or three times a year and only in great numbers for Christmas cards, so naturally, I'll probably be getting that Madonna and Child number I usually favor for those. Nothing to get excited about. (I never get around to sending my Jewish friends Hannukah cards...)
It's pretty.... Here's the facebook picture:
And the text: Don't buy this stamp! It is pretty, but keep reading!
