Went to the post office the other day to check out the new stamps. What on earth are they selling these days?! I couldn’t believe the selection: Harry Potter (none too popular with stamp buyers, so I was told), Shirley Chisolm, and Jimi Hendrix.
The stamps were actually kind of pretty, in a spacey, psychedelic kind of way. Some think he was a fabulous guitar player, but I beg to differ. Maybe he had a terrific great tremolno from guitar center or whatever, but biting the strings and playing with one’s teeth is a bit over the top of musical ability, IMHO.
I hope they get some new stamps out soon. I’m very happy to give suggestions. How about a MercyMe stamp? Or Steven Curtis Chapman with his Fender guitar? Or maybe Trace Bundy and his nice acoustic? Come on, USPS, you can do better.
