There Goes My Hero
Derek from Freedom Dogs longs for the good old days of war propaganda. He has some great examples of comic book heroes doing their part (the one with Superman and Khrushchev is killer) and wonders why we can't see more of the same today.
Mary e-mails with a beef:
While Luthor Vandross certainly deserves kudos for his life's work, it's shameful that the Star Tribune (via the AP) had so little to say about a truly great American Hero.
She's speaking of Admiral James Stockdale, who passed away earlier this week (RIP). Fortunately we don't need to rely on the Strib for an appropriate tribute.
Katie from Yucky Salad With Bones recounts her childhood encounter with the real life American hero:
He was also a very kind, friendly man who let an obnoxious five-year-old girl climb all over his badly healed leg and didn't scare her half to death with the truth of how it had been broken.
You're definitely going to want to read the whole thing.
