Basically, where Superman is concerned, there seems a lot to be agitated about these days. Which leads us to a teachable moment: Children, this is what happens when you spend all your time on your computers in your parents' basements.
Look, I like comic books. That kid with the holes in the knees of his jeans rummaging through the carousel rack at the drugstore back in 1962? He's still here. He just wears better jeans nowadays when he stops in at the comic book shop to see what's new.
But sheesh, getting upset over who plays Perry White in the movies or whether Superman still works at a newspaper is like getting upset when Bugs Bunny pulls off his wig to reveal he's not really a girl.
And it's especially sad when you consider all the real problems in the world deserving of genuine outrage and action. But you have to get out of the basement for that.
Oh, well. Adios, Clark. Fake journalism will miss your fake insight and fake prose. I understand they are now going to go to the fake blogosphere where you will become a fake blogger. Good fake luck with that.
And if that doesn't work out, maybe you can get a job on an imaginary farm.
