Post Offices not doing enough

"Post Office should initiate more promotional drives to encourage people to take up stamp collecting as a hobby. To me, they're not doing enough and not having the correct way of doing it."

So says Y. N. Loo of Kuala Lumpur who laments the indifference showed by Pos Malaysia in an article that appears on the Malaysian National News Agency Web site.

Loo also feels Pos Malaysia has been too profit-oriented and tends to neglect its social obligation.

Sounds like some American collectors I know.

A dealer friend of Loo's adds, "Having good stamps but not promoting them is like having a beautiful girl who knows how to put make up but does not go out socialising and ends up not having a boyfriend."

Mmmmmmmmmmm. Never thought about it that way before.
