I'm late to come to it, it looks like--

but goodbye, Superman.

Christopher Reeve had something in common with the big blue guy; a congenital inability to quit fighting when the cause is good. The world's a little poorer for his loss, but I don't think it's too much to say that the heat-death of the universe is a bit farther off for his life.

Here's to a return to the days when you could say "truth, justice, and the American way" in the same sentence without the urge to cough into your hand. Thanks for being somebody I could honestly look up to, Mr. Reeve.
