The Sagan Appreciation Society is petitioning for the US Postal Service to issue a postage stamp honoring astronomer and science writer Carl Sagan. An article last week in the Ithaca Journal says the petition should be available online at the Society's site, but it isn't currently there. This is one of the proposed stamps, illustrated by Skeptics Society founder Pat Linse. From the Ithaca Journal:
"Carl was an avid stamp collector as a boy, and we treasure the albums he made then, (said Sagan's wife Ann Druyan.) "They're filled with his handwritten notes in the margins – perhaps the earliest evidence of his passion for the diversity of Earth's cultures. So this particular tribute to Carl would have held special significance for him, as it does for me."
