Today begins our Spring Break "staycation." So what did we do tonight? Nathan went to hear some bands. Jessi went to spend the night at a friend's house. Debra and I had Chinese, washed the dogs and watched TV. Gosh, I wonder what other wonders we'll share before the week is out?

Meanwhile, I finally got around to reading Today's Pick, which I bought more than week ago:

Part of DC's line of "All-Star" books, this is the Superman series that's not so weighed down in continuity and taps into the wonder of the old stories with a modern sensibility. It's what the next Superman movie should be based on -- no need for an origin story, lets just see Superman dive into the sun to save explorers aboard the SS Ray Bradbury, or fight evolved dino-warriors from the earth's core, or give Lois Lane superpowers for a day, or visit Lex Luthor in prison as Clark and avoid giving away his secret ID during a riot, or see him fight the "Chronovore" alongside his descendents from the future who have come to visit him on one of the darkest days of his life.


Today's Word: Chronos.
