It is a momentous day. It is the Feast our Our Lady of Fatima, the day of the release of Universae Ecclesiae, the day of the last broadcast of Smallville.
Yes, friends, the young Clark Kent finally becomes Superman.
I was pretty irritated last week when I learned that Superman had, horribile dictu, renounced his American citizenship. What about “Truth, Justice and the American Way!”?
NO! SUPERMAN! Say it ain’t so!
I was pretty irritated.
But today I learn that Superman has reaffirmed his love of the United States, while gazing at the flag.
I am not sure who “Livewire” is… probably a bad guy… probably using the his cover as a writer for the Fishwrap to twist people to the dark side and, in their confusion, dismiss abortion as an issue Catholics have to consider when voting. Not sure.
Though that little bit about “people everywhere”… a little ominous. And it looks like Superman is advocating illegal immigration. He was an illegal alien I guess. Yes, this comic image has changed my view of illegal aliens. Orphans from Krypton can have amnesty if they fight for Truth, Justice and the American Way. The rest still have to apply for a visa.
I put out the Vatican flag today in honor of Universae Ecclesiae but as soon as I finish here I will put out my American flag too. I don’t have a Superman flag. Maybe I can the Superman “S” up as my computer wall paper for the rest of the day.
Then I will open my Veuve Cliquot.
