Playboy was founded in Chicago, and I believe there is a street named "Hugh Hefner Way," right? Seems to me it would be natural to release the stamps at Chicagopex. And your job as publicity chairman would be made much easier, what with all the media attention such an issue would bring.

These stamps will be in a sheetlet of 6 stamps and have a face value of $3.42. I will have these sheets available as a stock item for sure. I may even get some covers canceled on the first day.

>Calling Mayor Daley wouldn't go much good, given the fact that at this moment he and his wife are on a flight to India to visit their daughter (who there as an exchange student).

As a commonwealth nation (an exaggeration, indeed, given the size of the islands) St. Vincent should be aware of a very important precedent.

Somehow, it is reputed, a number of very early Bolivian stamps came into the possession of Queen Victoria who was not amused at certain elements on the stamps that she found insulting in the light of British interests in Chile. She summonsed the then prime minister (feasible at the time) and demanded an explanation. He was somewhat speechless at which she snapped. "Bring me my spectacles" He did. Then, "Bring me my globe". He complied. Then, "Bring me my pen." He did so. Then peering at the globe she asked in imperious tones: "Where is Bolivia?" The prime minister dutifully pointed out its location whereupon with two strokes of the pen she crossed out Bolivia thundering: "Bolivia no longer exists!" Indeed, for some twenty years Bolivia was a no go area for the British Empire. (As soon as they had tin in enormous quantities, of course, the dreadful Bolivian lese majeste was forgotten).

So St. Vincent had better watch out and take fright of the pen of her descendant Elizabeth II (of England and Wales and associated islands etc) and Elizabeth I of Scotland.

I would think St. Vincent is safe as long as Grandma doesn't catch Harry or Wills with a copy of the magazine, and it's probably too late for that by now anyway. Besides, there's always Page Six in London's tabloids...

Lloyd!
Please the St Vinnie girls are not that far back. They are on page two (at least as far as Rupert Murdoch is concerned).
All the best,
Charles

Victoria was a very stern woman who considered herself a monarch with no peers and her contemporaries would often watch their step with her.

Lloyd,

In your "sexy" press release you wrote:

<< Playboy, the first magazine ever to be honored on a stamp...>

Oops! Not quite. #3185c, the first issue of Life Magazine stamp in the 1930's CTC series issued in 1998, was the first magazine honored on a stamp.

And as to Todd's claiming page six notoriety for the British tabloids, I'd suggest it's page three. Check it out. :-)

Lloyd,

And note that I didn't include #1700, New York Times' publisher Adolph Oches, issued in 1976, as the first magazine on a stamp, since, well, it isn't a magazine.
