I explained to a French visitor that tax rates are different in every state, yet the corporate office of the chain restaurant sets their prices and prints the menus. Here, a restaurant inside the city limits charges 6% state tax plus 3% city tax, but the one next door outside the city limit only charges 6%.

Surely you recall this:

Announcer: Faster than a speeding bullet! More powerful than a locomotive! Able to leap tall buildings in a single bound!

Voices: Look, up in the sky! It's a bird! It's a plane! It's Superman!

Announcer: Yes, it's Superman, strange visitor from another planet, who came to Earth with powers and abilities far beyond those of mortal men. Superman, who can change the course of mighty rivers, bend steel in his bare hands, and who, disguised as Clark Kent, mild-mannered reporter for a great metropolitan newspaper, fights a never-ending battle for truth, justice and the American way.


Even as a child, I thought that "leap tall buildings" was dumb, since we could see him fly in the show. But the text was quoting from the 1941 movie.

That kind of illustrates what powers comic book writers should go with. Sure, weird is a lot of fun, but things that kids really wish they could do themselves is the key.

When you're a raccoon, eating is always a higher priority than freedom. Dmitry has taught this raccoon that he doesn't need to worry about being trapped in the dumpster.

I remember that day well. I was working my way through college. Because of my age (and that fact that I was a rock fan) I had been pretty oblivious to Elvis' comeback years. People were seriously crying like a family member had died, and I just didn't get it.

After all, I had just seen Star Wars.

A lot of readers in Finland and Alaska objected to #6, since they've seen a 2AM sunrise. The train raised all kinds of questions, smoke, no locomotive, one train has a working engines on both ends, and the engineless train doesn't have a track.
