Yesterday I received issue 25 of Captain America in which he gets assassinated after turning himself in to the federal mutant registration program. This after a protracted scrap with Iron Man. The bad guys behind it also hypnotize Shield Agent Sharon Rogers into believing she pulled the trigger.
This turn of events inspires the same response that the average Tony Snow news conference inspires: "that is some fucked up shit." When Marvel kills off Captain America to make a point about fascist drift in the USA, you better know we're up against it.
On a lighter note, baseball starts soon. When have we needed baseball more than we do now? Days are longer, more light in the morning, more light at night.
