"Titans" Easter egg honors Gail Simone

Gail Simone posted a lengthy item on Facebook, here.Gail Simone said:Okay, this is something I have to express, wasn't sure how to address it, so I'll just ramble a bit. My apologies.Many of you already have heard me talk about how Barbara Gordon was a thunderbolt in my life when I was just a little girl.

Ten years ago today ...

Posted on February 20, 2011 at 7:56pm 19 Comments

On this day 10 years ago, I was in an accident that totaled my car. I am grateful today for three things: 



That I was in the car by myself; I doubt a passenger would have survived.



That I walked away from it whole; save for some pain in my side that lasted about a week, I was and remain physically sound.



That God saw fit to spare me, that I may carry on in this world and be the husband, father and person He wants me to be.

 

I am also grateful to have…

President Luthor (from the old board)

Posted on September 21, 2009 at 10:30am 9 Comments

From the old board, I launched the "President Luthor" thread with this post (July 21, 2003):





At my last visit to my friendly neighborhood comics shop, I say the President Luthor trade paperback. I haven't read the Superman titles for several years (heresy, I know), and the notion of Lex Luthor becoming President of the U.S. wasn't enough to entice me back.



It's a nifty idea, I'll admit ... but the time to do it was very shortly after the… Continue

Bugs Bunny, the greatest baseball player ever

Posted on August 18, 2009 at 2:49pm 3 Comments

I just ran across this sportswriter's analysis of "Baseball Bugs," the classic Looney Tunes short in which Bugs Bunny takes on the Gas House Gorillas all by himself -- starting in the fourth inning of a game in which the Gorillas are leading the Tea Totallers 54-0 -- and wins 96-95. It's funny because it's so, so serious ... "Bugs Bunny, Greatest Banned Player Ever"

(Sorry. My original post had the wrong link

The church is Wesley-Knox United Church in London, Ontario. They drew a sizable crowd to Chaney's Phantom

I have some links below. You'd have to contact them for further information:
