Comics Characters go to Court

The Law Library at Yale University is currently showing a display of comic books that feature stories with their characters in a courtroom. An article in The New York Times alerted me to this show and I salute the writer. He is an informed reviewer because he does more than just report what is in the show; he digs deeper to reveal what probably should have been in the show but was excluded, like any reference to lawyer Matt (Daredevil) Murdock. This show runs through December 16 and you can find out more at the Yale Law Library website.

The JLA and The Black-Eyed Peas

I saw an article in this morning's Chicago Tribune that gave me a chuckle and I thought I would share it with you.

The write-up in the newspaper is about the music group The Black-Eyed Peas and how its members are blank-canvas ciphers that nobody really knows anything about. Author Christopher Borrelli proposes that "their costumes and posturing suggest not a musical act but a quasi Justice League of America."

All I know about The Black-Eyed Peas is that I like their song "I Gotta Feeling" but the photo published with the article does support the costuming and posturing thesis. I got a little laugh out of it! You can see the full article online here.
