Postage Stamp of the Week: VCRs

This 1999 stamp celebrates the video cassette recorder, whose 1970s introduction launched the home video revolution. (I dig the top-loading model seen above, with its tape-recorder type buttons, a knob for changing channels, and the analog counter. It probably weighs 80 pounds.) Anyway, on Sunday I'll become the manager of my neighborhood video store. (Note to self: improve web site.)

Home video been berry berry good to me.
