Quote of the day:

"It's very hard for me to be silly about Superman, because I've seen firsthand how he actually transforms people's lives. I have seen children dying of brain tumors who wanted as their last request to talk to me, and have gone to their graves with a peace brought on by knowing that their belief in this kind of character really matters. It's not Superman the tongue-in-cheek cartoon character they're connecting with; they're connecting with something very basic: the ability to overcome obstacles, the ability to persevere, the ability to understand difficulty and to turn your back on it."
-Christopher Reeve (September 25, 1952 - October 10, 2004)

-----

Trump's suggestion NFL owners fire players who kneel during the national anthem resulted in a major backlash prior to yesterday's games. And Why is Kaepernick taking a knee different from when Tebow does it?

-----

Cynicism is killing our democracy. Only political participation can save it. "History is decided by the people that show up," and about 60 million people- about 1/5th of the country- showed up to vote for a boorish reality TV star with no experience in politics.

The new bans will take effect Oct. 18.
