Our third Specialist takes the stage next week. Click below for a preview!
The scumbag who stole Mike Meyer’s Superman collection has been caught, and Mike’s stuff has been returned to him. It’s good to see justice served, or at least to see bad guys taken off the street. This piece of filth was caught robbing an old man, so he seems to specialize in taking advantage of the most vulnerable people he can find.
Thanks to donations sent from all over the world, Mike’s collection has doubled in size. But rather than reaping the unexpected benefits of his misfortune, he intends to give the donated items to charity or a children’s hospital. He said, “People were generous to me; this is how I can be generous in return.” Then he flew away before anyone could thank him, and was last seen heading north.
After re-reading the first four of George R.R. Martin’s Song of Ice and Fire books and then the new fifth book, I was kind of exhausted. That’s close to 5,000 pages of very dense story. I started re-reading the first Wildcards book, which was recently re-released, but it wasn’t holding my attention, and I haven’t touched my Nook for a couple of weeks, which is just as well, because I haven’t had much time.
So what have you been reading lately? Any good?
(Speaking of Game of Thrones, congratulations to Peter Dinklage on his best supporting actor Emmy!)
This story is as infuriating as it is inspiring. Mike Meyer, a mentally disabled man from St. Louis, had his beloved collection of Superman comics and memorabilia stolen by a man pretending to be his friend. He’d been collecting for over thirty years. That’s the infuriating part.
The inspiring part is the swell of support for Mike from all over the world. People have been donating comics and merchandise to help him rebuild his collection, or just cards or drawings to wish him well and let him know that not everyone is an evil piece of filth. If you’d like to help out, you can send donations or well-wishes to the address below. You might also want to check out this Facebook page for more information.
