Thanks for the warning Paul.
It was difficult for me to believe that the director of the reprehensible 300 could have any clue at all about what Superman is all about. Apparently he doesn't.
I think I can skip this.

Here's a fun fact: After being introduced to great fanfare in 1953, seven years later color TV looked like it was on the ropes, with very little programming available on only one network in the world. And all of the manufacturers quit making color TV sets-- save for one company that also owned that last network broadcasting in color. They dropped a lot of money on it--reasonably, they should have abandoned color then and there too.

I was a boy scout in the 70s in southern Arizona, and when we'd go camping sometimes we'd run across old film sets that were just sitting out there, unfenced and ungaurded. Generally you could tell a film set from a ghost town fairly easily. Film western towns usually hava tidy main street, real ghost towns were usually not so planned. And of course some of the buildings were false fronts.

Great story Catalina.
It must be great for Alex Jones though, he doesn't have to pay publicists. Maddowblog, Media Matters and Slog give him free publicity.

Goldy, I think you give republicans too much credit. They'd be fine with closing lanes on the I-5 in exchange for lower taxes.
Now if you proposed cutting lanes on the I-90 east of the Cascades, that might give them pause.
They love tax cuts more than highway lanes, but they love making King county pay for their infrastructure most of all.
