Generally speaking, this stamp enthusiast does not become over-enthused by the love stamps.  Today, however, is Loving Day, commemorating the 1967 victory of Mildred and Richard Loving over the anti-miscegenation laws yet standing on the books in these here United States of America, with the SCOTUS [at last, at last!] stating, “There can be no doubt that restricting the freedom to marry solely because of racial classifications violates the central meaning of the equal protection clause.”  Well well.  Mildred and Richard—you are pioneers of equality and embody the spirit that should reign over the hearts in this nation.  Your courage continues to inspire.  Loving Day, indeed!
