Which of the DC 52 are for you?

08/31/11 11:42PM

As you've likely heard by now, today was the first day of a relaunch of 52 comic book titles by DC Comics -the DC new 52.I'm already in for Justice League, and I was thinking of picking up a Batman title, so I guess that affirms that choice. Professionally I feel somewhat obligated to follow Batwoman as well. (Remember Rachel wrote the intro to that book?)What about Swamp Thing? I thought everyone loved that book? And not Dark Knight?

Will the American Dream end with a yawning income gap?

Last night, Melissa shared some new renderings of U.S. household income based on a review of census data going back to 1967. The pictures, many more of which can be found in Doug Short's report here, show that lower income Americans are essentially treading water.Melissa argues that the plight of these Americans are what should be top priority of Congress and the Obama administration:President Obama has limited unilateral power.  He must govern with a hostile Republican majority in the House and a filibuster crazy Republican minority in the Senate. read more
