Carl Reiner was a decent man.
It can feel like we have a firm sense of our histories. But we can only make out the twigs.
Read comic: I, Germ Line – by Mike Dawson
If you’re looking for loopholes, you’re trying to get away with something. If you’re trying to get away with something for personal gain, you know it’s unethical or illegal. If you don’t know it’s unethical or illegal, you’re still a loose cannon and should be stopped.
Writing into her 90s — her last book was published last month — Dr. Midgley challenged with wit and verve the primacy of science as arbiter of reality.
I saw the first episode of Titans over the weekend and liked it. It’s updated the team for 2018, which upsets a lot of the old school fans, but I don’t think the 1980s origins would translate well to the present. Another stick in people’s craws is the series is Not For Children. There’s a lot of swearing and bleeding and adult themes, which is probably why there’s no Teen in the title. It’s not gratuitous, though; it’s all related to the story. More mature themes would go along with more mature writing, since this isn’t written for kids, it’s written for adults who can think at an adult level. It doesn’t dumb down the storytelling, which will probably lose viewers expecting all the answers to be easy. The best analogy I can think of is it’s Watchmen’s style applied to the mainstream DC Universe.

For one, our planet would immediately shrink in both mass and radius. Gravity would weaken. Oh, and there’s the blueberry geysers.
Earl Caldwell made history before he wrote it on the night of April 4, 1968, when he reported firsthand on the assassination of Martin Luther King Jr. for The New York Times.

Everyone’s worried that the end of the “The Book of Kevin” spoiled the series, when the beginning was even worse. It showed a woman faithfully following a preacher who foretells an end of the world that never happens, and is ostracized in the end. Which will be the outline of the series. Nora will follow Kevin through his trying to stop the end of the world, and he’ll succeed, but when the end of the world doesn’t happen, Nora will be ostracized and deny she’s the mad woman on the roof.
I wonder how many times the world has been saved by those who warn of the end and go unacknowledged, even by themselves. Or just give the world a little reprieve, while the rock slips a little bit more.
