I took out some graphic novels from the library recently, including all three hardcovers that make up the DC series Justice.

It's about the Justice League of America. All their greatest enemies (except the Joker) team up and take them down. Lots of "big" stuff happens. And in the end there's a reset and everything is basically back to where it was.

My review: pretty lame. Not memorable. Confusing, but not because I was in over my head; because it was just NOT WELL WRITTEN. Pretty art, but that's about all that can be said for it.

More and more, I have to say that DC and Marvel are only good when they have one of the best writers working for them. But most of their stuff just sucks.

I also read Top Ten: The Forty-Niners by Alan Moore a while ago. Now HE can write - he's the best there is, I would say. The book was FASCINATING, even though Moore didn't have the advantage of working with classic characters like Batman and Superman. I read it over and over, and didn't want to return it to the library!

People at work were talking about McCain's concession speech. They said it was awfully sincere and honorable, and that if he'd run his campaign like that all the way through, he might have won. That was the "real" McCain, they said.

I had to answer.

"But that's not the 'real' John McCain! During the 2000 election in the south he started talking about the Confederate flag, how it was a valid expression of 'Southern pride' and should be flown from the statehouses there. But after Bush creamed him in the primaries, he wrote a book saying that he'd betrayed his ideals and dishonored himself in the heat of the moment, for political gain.

And then he did the same thing again in the 2008 election! As soon as he was under pressure, he went straight for the mud like a pig returning to its slops. If you claim to have high standards but drop them every time they become inconvenient, you don't have high standards. You're just a whore with delusions of purity."
