...The One-Minute Pundit

Yesterday I mentioned "the Nuremburg Rally of show-biz". Consider: Nuremburg drew tens of thousands of maniacs who dressed funny. So does Comic-Con. These same people did funny salutes. So do the Comic-Cons. Nuremburg had Leni Reifenstahl. Comic-Con had KING JAMES. At Nuremburg the masses saluted evil. At Comic-Con they salute people who...look evil. At Nuremburg they obsessed over supermen. At Comic-Con they obsess over Superman. Nuremburg had all sorts of behind-the-scenes types who weren't nice, like Goering and Goebbels. Comic-Con has all sorts of behind-the-scenes types who aren't nice, like SLIME and SUMNER. We intend no slander to the Comic-Cons, who would as soon think of mass murder as they would think; but when people start exclaiming en masse no good's likely to come of it.
