commented on I Regret the New Pope
Every time I hear quotes from him I try to remind myself that:
A) I'm an Atheist, so I should really care about what any religious leader say
B) I was raised Lutheran so I REALLY shouldn't care what the Pope says
C) There are all the problems with the churches stances on reproductive rights
...but dang it I can't help but like this guy.

It really screwed with the podcasts. I'm always confused when they take something that is working great and decide to "fix" it, or reduce the functionality of the old version for no apparent reason.

commented on Creators Quit Comic Book When DC Comics Refuses to Publish a Gay Wedding
@19 Two things:
1) I can totally understand wanting to dump marriages for characters. But...
2) Batwoman is a boutique character and isn't going to really go mainstream DCU anytime soon. Editorial knows that. The book is more in the vein of Moore's Swamp Thing and Morrison's Animal Man.
Their bad decision making is rooted in stupidity, ignorance, and lack of foresight. That's why I've kept clear of all their books except for Wonder Woman.
Sidenote: I understand people being unhappy with what they did with Wonder Woman, but it is really awesome now.

@Peak timber. Peak bat guano. Peak whale oil. Those are off the top of my head. There have always been resources that eventually came to be in short supply that, once they become prohibitively expensive we move to the next thing. I see no reason we won't do that again.
