Our problem

Round-Up reader Svend Waever sent me this cartoon by Gary Markstein along with the notation, "Our problem."

What Swend is referring to is trying to get young people interested in stamp collecting. These days with e-mail, text messaging and meter labels they hardly know what a stamp is let alone stamp collecting!
Svend has a terrific blog of his own - Philately of Today. On it he has a very thoughtful post about collecting first day covers as well as some other topics.
Incidentally, Svend and I are going to team up to see if we can't come up with a e-book about stamp collecting and philately in the age of the Internet in an effort to correct the "problem".
If you would like to help, please let Svend or I know of your interest.
