Used to be that being an 'intrepid reporter' such as those in the Daily Planet was a good thing, and journalism students would dream of uncovering the big story and exposing corruption. It seems that for some it really depends on who is doing the corrupting. In the tradition of great journalism that, in today's political climate, has devolved into stenography for the Administration, James O' Keefe and Hannah Giles have actually performed a public service and reported on corruption at ACORN, a group with major ties to the current power structure, as seen here:

I wonder whether they'll be immortalized on film the way Woodward and Bernstein were. I doubt it, because, though the claims of the generation that looked up to those journalists were that power that corrupted needed to be addressed, they clearly meant power in the hands of those they didn't agree with politically.

Due to Labor Day, Wednesday Comics arrived in stores on Thursday this week. As they fast approach the end of this run, Metamorpho and Element Girl seem to be deceased as of our last installment, as heralded in the title:

In Supergirl, the pets are loose, and Supergirl takes the diplomatic approach to the invading aliens, with the usual results. Is Supergirl a Hillary Clinton-in-the-making?

Back from the dead, Conner Kent has a date with his pre-deceased girlfriend Wonder Girl in the Superboy feature in Adventure Comics #3, accompanied by Krypto. There's a nice scene with Martha Kent that reminds us of the recent passing of Jonathan Kent.

On a model note, Marlon Teixeira appeared in German GQ:

The morning of September 11, I was groggy when I turned on the TV, and it didn't register with me that what I was seeing was really happening and not a promo for an upcoming film. I went to college on Long Island, so I didn't see the Twin Towers on a daily basis, but I also couldn't recall a time they weren't there. Unbelievably, there's still nothing there. Much has been made over the warm wishes of the world after we were attacked, and how that was 'squandered' by our later actions in the War on Terror (as lamentable a concept as the War on Drugs or the War on Poverty), but I thought the world enjoyed seeing us as a fellow victim, just as they enjoy President Obama's never-ending Apology Tour. We were okay when we needed to be consoled, but not so much when we grabbed a gun and took action to make sure it wasn't going to happen again. Not unlike a Lifetime movie. On our own soil, I knew we'd lost direction with the formation of the 9/11 Commission to determine who was 'responsible' for what had happened. Those with an axe to grind on both sides of the political spectrum were willing to watch the inquiries in the hope that blame could be laid at the feet of the Clinton or Bush Administrations, rather than the terrorists who had actually committed the acts, or, God forbid, the radical religious views of those same terrorists. After years of listening to the Left maintain that one should never 'blame the victim', we were more than willing to do so where America was concerned, as America was ascertained to have worn too short a skirt while hanging out in dangerous neighborhoods with sketchy people and therefore inviting an attack.
Worse could be said, and was. Mostly by Michael Moore and the 'Truthers', like Rosie O'Donnell and Charlie Sheen. Just ask Van Jones. By the way, today is Day Six without a Green Jobs Czar.

Day Five without a Green Jobs Czar begins! How much longer can we muddle through without one?

On a totally unrelated note, Supernatural returns this evening! Though I hated the overblown Heaven/Hell; Angels/Demons storyline last season, there has always been enough good stuff in terms of both writing and acting in the show to keep me returning each season, and I have to admit I'm excited to see what they come up with this time around.
Jeff Slater Mag released pics of David Filipiak, as seen here previously, so I thought I'd post a couple

And, for those keeping track, it's DAY FOUR of America Without a Green Jobs Czar! How much longer?

Tuesday, September 08, 2009


Hope everyone had a great Labor Day Weekend! I know I did! I must have awoken in a time warp, though, as television listings for this evening inform me that 90210 and Melrose Place are both NEW episodes!Is it the 1980s again? I know it SEEMS like the Carter Presidency, but even Jimmy didn't try to abolish the Constitution as quickly and efficiently as Obama and his cohorts are doing. I only hope the United States can survive as it's been almost four days since we've had a Green Jobs Czar!
Happily, Glee starts it's first full season on Wednesday! I know I'm psyched!


Also psyched about new pics of David Filipiak, previously seen here at American Idle, by Jeff Slater:
