The Daily Planet


When I first saw today’s one-word prompt, “planet,” I was going to write a serious post about how climate change is destroying our planet.

I was going to lament about how the Republicans, who are now the majority in our Congress, who occupy the White House, and who are packing our judicial system with conservative judges, are a bunch of anti-science climate change deniers who don’t give two shits about what kind of planet we pass on to our descendants.

I was going to be critical of our ignoramus president, who thinks climate change is a Chinese hoax, who is pulling the United States out of the Paris Climate Accord, and who is more concerned with what pro athletes do during the playing of our national anthem at sporting events than with the future viability of our planet to sustain human life.

But instead, I decided to harken back to my youth and recall that “The Daily Planet” was the name of the newspaper that Clark Kent (Superman), Lois Lane, Jimmy Olsen, and Perry White worked at in the original 1950s TV series, “The Adventures of Superman.”

    Unquestionably believe that which you stated.
    Your favorite reason seemed to be on the web
    the simplest thing to be aware of. I say to you, I definitely get annoyed while people think about worries that they just do not know about.

    You managed to hit the nail upon the top as well as defined out the
    whole thing without having side-effects , people can take a signal.
    Will likely be back to get more. Thanks
