The inimitable David Pescovitz at BoingBoing discovered today that "the Sagan Appreciation Society is petitioning the US Postal Service to issue a postage stamp honoring astronomer and science writer Carl Sagan." Personally, I'm entirely for it. I grew up -- as did Sean -- on episodes of Cosmos. And while the movie Contact was fun, the book was simply divine.
The bad news: we'll have to wait a bit for the petition. Apparently the 'Society hasn't put it together yet. We'll keep an eye out and let you know when to sign on the line.
