Just to let everyone know: It has not escaped my notice that Jimmy Olsen has been floating (presumed) dead in Metropolis Harbor for over a month now, and nobody -- not his "best friend" Superman, not his coworker Lois Lane, not his boss Perry White, not even the Daily Planet HR department -- seems to have noticed or seems to care.

It's because he used to be a Legionnaire, that's why. Even though it was long ago, far away, and several universal reboots ago that young James wore the Elastic Lad costume and journeyed to the 30th century, that doesn't prevent the DC bigwigs from mistreating, abusing, and neglecting current and past Legionnaires (and/or Legion supporting characters).

I mean, look, Batman co-starred with the Legion in a handful of stories, and they went and killed him.

When will this rampant anti-LSH bias end?

(Yeah yeah yeah, I know, it's been going on for 25 years or more, why should it stop now?)

. . . And the solicitations for January have Lana Lang (Insect Queen) buying the farm. Better double the SecretService detail with former president, Pete Ross.

Stop the madness!
