notable: eames us postal stamps

the us postal service previews 2008 stamps with the likes of frank sinatra, bette davis, and now iconic designing power couple charles and ray eames. i have long lusted after the films of charles and ray eames (available at usd$80), or the hang-it-all (also available at usd$149), and have found that the powers of 10 is one of the most amazing short films ever made today. but if i were to post a piece of mail in the us today, i would never ever lick these stamps. it would be a privilege to own, and ponder licking them, but i would never do it.
