Comic Justice

More fallout from Captain America's death in the media. Of particular note was Stephen Colbert's "Word" last night.

The fine gentleman over at One Good Move posted it up and you should click here to watch it.

Also, a half a dozen other blogs all picked up on my Captain America editorial.

Check those out here. Here. Here. Here. And here.

There's also quite a spirited discussion on the actual article if any of you feel like you might want to join the debate.

I have to say, I wish the mainstream media would have focused as much on the death of Captain America as they did on the death of Anna Nicole Smith. At least the issues surrounding his death are conducive to important conversations that need to be had in these stressful times of war. We need to be discussing in the popular press the give and take of liberty vs. security. We need to talk about heroes standing up for what is right as opposed to whatever the hell the Bush administration has to say. We need to talk about the patriotic nature and history of dissent.

More attention should be paid to this.

That's what I think, anyway.
