Burroughs Stamp Gets Tarzan Yell

Los Angeles Daily News staff writer Dana Bartholomew reports, "The unmistakable yell of Tarzan ripped through the trees Friday above Tarzana Community and Cultural Center. Then off came the veil from an oversize newly released postage stamp of San Fernando Valley author Edgar Rice Burroughs and his tree-climbing, ape-man hero.

 Dana Bartholomew goes to pen, "In a first-day-of-issue ceremony, hundreds of officials, community members, Burroughs family members and fans hailed the author on his home turf, on what was once his sprawling Tarzana Ranch. From across the nation, they came to trumpet Tarzan of the Apes, Lord of the Jungle, on the eve of his 2012 centennial birthday."
