DÉJA VU ALL OVER AGAIN – Driving in this a.m., I chanced to catch NPR's "Morning Edition" story about the Death of Captain America. (The short piece, which includes quick snippets of Stan Lee, Joe Simon and current Cap writer Ed Brubaker, can be read or listened to here.) Not to make too much of a story that's largely being treated by the media as an entertaining little puff-piece, but, c'mon, people – doesn't anyone at National Public Radio remember just fifteen years back to the similar big media play that was accorded the over-ballyhooed Death of Superman? (You know, Mister Truth-Justice-And-the-American Way.) Some days I think our mainstream press counts on us all possessing the long-term memory of a sand flea . . .
