The SuperHero Superpowers Of Flight Or Invisibility: Morality is All That Separates Us

video still of D.C. comics superhero Superman in flight rescuing the falling passenger cabin and fuselage of a jumbo jet.

by Tony Wyman There is a question that, on the surface, seems perfectly innocuous, but, when answered, reveals a great deal about us as individuals. Here it is: If you could have one super power, choosing between the ability to fly without an aircraft or the ability to be completely invisible at times of your choosing, which would you choose? Flight or invisibility. Pick one. To my shame, like probably half of you reading this – I took invisibility. Why this choice reveals so much is explained in one of…

By Dena Leichnitz The push to re-invent comic book superheroes and Wonder Woman The Left has continually tried to “turn” everyone gay by outing historical figures, whether there is evidence to support it or merely innuendo. Having incorporated that is a tactic in GLBTQ politics, it probably comes as no surprise that there is a concerted effort to “reboot” entertainment  icons including in the world of comics –  particularly action figures.

by Richard Cameron This is less a eulogy than a offering to a man, who although he is far from a household word among music fans, was not only there at the inception of the emergence of a musical tour de force both inspirational and incomperable, but was half of the creative apparatus that sustained Steely Dan for close to 5 decades.  Walter Becker, age 67, born in Queens, NY,  made his serotinal departure earlier today of undisclosed cause or causes at time of publication.

Stranger Than Fiction Reality TV Shows On Cable Trying to Steal Network Viewers

By Janice Barlow Cable television is heating up for the fall season, in competition with the networks. Each year, the cable channels steal away some of the viewers from traditional shows on network television. Personally, I can’t recall watching any network TV show on a regular basis recently except for “24“. The fixation with reality shows continues. On the standard viewing circuit, the typical competition shows, complete with drama prevail. “American Idol“, “Dancing With the Stars“, “America’s Got Talent“, “Survivor“, and so on, have replaced sitcoms. But cable has taken…

by Dena Leichnitz Abortion is already a heated and polarizing subject, so leave it to the pro-abortion community to make it even more so by creating a musical about the killing of children. The Pig Iron School for Advanced Performance Training has decided to do a musical about abortion and set it to a song no less. With organizations like Silent No More Awareness Campaign and Rachel’s Vineyard out there on the battle lines, women are talking about abortion and what they are saying is that not empowering, it is…
