News: Former Postmaster General Benjamin Bailar has resigned in high dudgeon from his post on the super-secret committee that chooses what goes on America’s stamps, complaining that the Postal Service is “prostituting” itself by depicting characters from comics and movies rather than more “enduring” subjects. Apparently current Postmaster General Patrick R. Donahoe has been ignoring the committee’s recommendations; in November, he went ahead with a series of Harry Potter stamps without notifying them, eliciting howls of protest. “While they may support a drive to ‘sell the product’ with abundance of pretty and popular culture subjects, the result is a program that lacks gravitas,” Bailar said.

You may have heard that FX is marathoning The Simpsons. Vulture has provided a pretty good guide (except for the part where they think “The Principal and the Pauper” has aged well...) to help you with this cultural event. NPR has their own guide to the show’s music, which lives up to their promises of cromulence.
