"Today at my school was super-hero day, because in my school system there is a kindergarten student who hasn't been able to start school yet because he has a brain tumor.
We were all encouraged to dress as super-heroes today and post pictures…"
"My son and his girlfriend went out for a bite to eat, and encountered two of his best buddies, so all four of them went to dinner ...
... and the best buddies told the girlfriend she's WAY better than the previous girlfriend. "
You're being kind. As I recall, Columbo's best evidence of foul play was that the victim -- a stereotypical Texan -- would never have tuned his car radio to anything other than a country and western station."
I think the weight of the evidence is that he was a career criminal.
There's lots of little stuff -- he talks about getting out of "the life," he's sensitive about the difference between a burglar and a violent…"
"As usual, I'm late to the party and so have little (actaully, nothing) new to add. Action Lad and I saw this this morning and loved it. It was, as has been said repeatedly above, just plain fun. It please me no end that Marvel…"

Thanks fot the welcome! Man, you ARE old! I don't even want to think about how long I've been writing my column. I figured I had a half-dozen topics tops, but they just keep coming. I'm glad you enjoy it.
I appreciate you taking the time to tell me that. In fact, I'm right in the middle of preparing the next Deck Log entry when I took a moment to check my new e-mail.
I imagine all of us leave a bigger wake than what we realise. But it's nice to, every once in a while, have somebody tell us so. I'm glad you enjoy the column. Many moons ago, when Rich Lane approached me with the idea, my first concern (after wondering if there was enough material to keep a Silver-Age column going for long) was if anybody would have any interest in reading it.
The hit-counters tell me that somebody's out there reading it, but it's an especial treat to get a note like yours. I completely understand the business about not saying anything unless you have something to say. In reflexion, I'm the same way. Not only on threads here, but I frequent other sites regularly, and have yet to post a comment---because there's nothing I can add to the commentary.
