So it goes — Who should write Superman pt. 10

April 12, 2007

“Frankly, this picture-book series could’ve been a lot better. I could have written it as they did during the war, full of gusto. But that isn’t what I wanted to write. I wanted to write something that wouldn’t have been better off as toilet paper. I didn’t succeed, but if you only take one thing away from it, know that a Superman should live his own life instead of helping humanity.

So long as a person can be kind, it doesn’t really matter what they want to do with their time. Chasing money, searching for wide-open beavers, and even sitting around are perfectly good ways to pass the time. Making your happiness contingent on helping others is terribly noble, but liable to do little for them and less for yourself. All in all, we aren’t worth it.”

    i see you’re hoping that sympathy will outweigh JTs hostility to dead authors.

    America has lost a legend.

    Well, it took me 2 days or so, but I finally figured out what the hell was going on in this post.
