"Sad, pathetic fanboy that I am, when Cisco explained that he’d gimmicked the Speed Bazooka to frustrate Savitar’s Plan B, I sort of smirked to myself and thought “sounds like he reversed the polarity of the neutron…"
"Happy Belated, Mr. SA!
In order to coax our esteemed colleague into posting more often, let's all say really stupid things about the Silver Age that he can't possibly NOT rebut. (Hold your tongue, Commander. )
I'll go first:
"I’m glad you’re finding more fun in The Flash these days than I am, Rob.

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.
